Rounding the Earth (substack, podcast, and all the forms we might take) spent several months casually mulling over whether to take on sponsors, and how. At some point late last year, I decided that advertising and promotion could be kept at a personal level, where I have a sense that who and what we advertise at RTE aligns with our values. For the moment,
You’re doing the right thing, Mathew.
The wine branding is enough to get me drinking! Hysterical!
Did you see these DOD whistleblower articles from yesterday?
They are going to sell out of that wine.
Great sponsors! It's an excellent idea if it helps keep you productive, and sharing information about others who are in the fight in various ways is always good. Giving the wine as gifts to the like-minded is an outstanding idea for those of us who couldn't consume enough to affect their bottom line.
My fave new wine -- and I havent even tried it yet! I just ordered a half-case to try it... if anything, it'll make fun stocking stuffers for my dad and patriot friends. :) Wishing you all the best, Mathew!
Just ordered the book! Easy peasy.
I enrolled in Mark McDonald's course a few days ago. In the winter I plan to take biology and then a course on viruses. James Weiler Lyons has a great idea with IPAK-EDU.
As long as we are talking sponsorships, promotions and the blood of tyrants, I had a laugh this morning, reading the Substack Common Sense, a total softball interview of Larry Summers by Bari Weiss. The comments are hilarious, speaking of out of touch with the rabble elite. Common Sense commentariat is usually fawning. They eviscerated her and him.
Interesting concept. There were presumably many wine aficionados among our American revolutionary ancestors. Believe a fair number among the Sons Of Liberty were beer drinkers snd a few American whiskey imbibers. Revolutions undoubtedly require a representative number of all these. Believe they took their spirits when and where they found them.
A few months ago I had included reference to Overcoming the COVID Darkness in an email to a group of doctors. The email itself was related to other matters, but I included the book reference as a source of hope in the midst of the ongoing overwhelm that I keep hearing my dr friends lamenting.
One person of the more than one hundred responded. And her response was that I ought not be sending such information out, because this is the sort of thing that contributes to misinformation and vaccine hesitancy and to patients not trusting drs and how she has so many patients now who are angry w drs and the profession whereas at the beginning of all of this drs were heroes.
I eventually replied that these drs were simply reporting their own experiences, so it could hardly be misinformation, that no, they weren’t trying to make money off the book (as she suggested) and had made their protocols available freely online (I included links), and that no, their immigrant population was NOT in fact the whole population of their study nor was it an inherently healthier or less-at-risk population. (Something she should know, as she did her residency in southern CA.)
I never heard back.
