Why subscribe to The Other Wave?

Many of you know me as someone who’s long been at the forefront of disruption in journalism, with one foot inside the Canadian media system and one foot outside of it. After nearly two decades working on the editorial and business sides of this industry both at home and abroad, it’s time for me to lift the curtain.

Enter The Other Wave, a newsletter I launched in September 2020 that will (1) give you an insider’s look at how I’m challenging the status quo in Canadian journalism and (2) document my outsider’s journey building a media product that will embody modern Canada as you and I see it — that is, younger generations of Canadians who share the same forward-thinking values.

Please subscribe to get full access to my newsletter (you won’t have to worry about missing anything — every new edition of The Other Wave goes directly to your inbox). I’d love it if you spread the word to anyone who’d be interested in signing up, too.

Thanks so much for your support,

P.S. You can also follow The Other Wave on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
P.P.S. Don’t take it from me — here are all the lovely things my subscribers have said about The Other Wave:

I've been checking out The Other Wave and can hardly wait for the next issue. Your mapping of the Diffusion of Allies made the Bridge Detroit example feel actionable rather than exceptional — so refreshing. I'd love to hear about what's next in your community-driven journalism work.

Just wanted to say I'm loving your newsletter. This one, with Simpsons icons, is such a brilliant and funny idea.

- Hannah Sung, Canadian media icon, former MuchMusic VJ and creator of At The End Of The Day
