I'm pretty excited to get this issue out the door. I'm experimenting with a lot with this issue, so bear with me as I figure it out.

One thing I don't yet know is how easily I'll be able to recreate links from issue to issue, so I didn't put a lot of effort into the content in the CFP section; I am hoping to be able to provide some more background on the event, and definitely, include more.

I'll also be providing more color and background to any news articles that I share. For now, I was starting to get some in here, so I can get a feel for how to operate the newsletter.

For podcast episodes, I've here just included the most recent episodes from a few shows that I like. I intend to start using this section for more of episodes I have been listening to - which might be old ones! I love the back catalog.

Let me know if you have any feedback! Twitter is the best way to reach me - @mattstratton

Thanks for coming on this journey with me!
