Start Every (second) Friday Right!

… by receiving Five Links, a newsletter with five interesting links sent every second Friday.


Did you know the Pope is not actually a Catholic?

Have you learnt the true solution to the Trolley Problem?

Can you pick the baddie in movies solely by his phone?

See, if you were subscribed to Five Links, you’d know these things..


What to Expect

There’s a lot going on in our lives these days. We are bombarded each day by the news, social media feeds, group chats, work Teams and Slacks, and many other channels.

Five Links tries to cut through all that noise by presenting you with an email of curated links at a pace you can keep up with. Every second Friday. Very chill.

We filter things by first asking the question ‘is this interesting?’ and if the answer is no then we do not link to that thing.

We also like to link to things we think our subscribers might not have seen already, and we add a little extra commentary to give each link a personal flavour.

You can have a flick through past Issues to get a feel for if you like our style. And if you find you’ve gone a few weeks without finding any of our links interesting, you can subscribe at any time.

Sponsor a Link

This newsletter will always remain free. But occasionally we will include affiliate links in an issue that may earn us a small commission if you make a purchase. We won’t ever let affiliate links or any other sponsorships or promotions compromise what we link to.

Sometimes we will also include a sixth ‘sponsored link’ to help support the newsletter. We will work with you to agree the content of the sponsored link and we won’t ever link to something we don’t otherwise like or agree with — our small but intelligent readership isn’t going to be fooled into buying bad stuff anyways.


The Five Links Team

Ok, you got me. My name is Bennett Green and although I’ve been using the ‘Royal We’ above but in reality it’s just me writing this thing.

Please feel free to reach out to give me feedback on Five Links or just to say hello. You can also reach me on Twitter or email bennett@fivelinks.io
