Best Australian Email Newsletters

I’m a big lover of email newsletters. My morning routine goes like this. Over breakfast I scan through the AFR so I’m across what’s happening in the business world. Hey, not everyone’s cup of tea I know, but for my profession I need to know what’s going on. Once that’s ticked off, I slide over to my dedicated email newsletter inbox. I’ll usually read one or two each morning, more on the weekend. I find them a fantastic way to get a variety of opinions, and insights, with far more depth than you find on the social media feeds. I subscribe to business and financial markets type newsletters, technology newsletters, design, one that focus entirely on interesting graphs, and a pop culture newsletter to keep up with the young folk. Each has their own unique personality, which is something else that I love about email newsletters.

Producing my weekly newsletter GainingCHOICE is often the most enjoyable part of my whole week. And the feedback I get is fantastic. Interestingly, whilst I get more monthly downloads of the Financial Autonomy podcast than I do readers of the newsletter, I get far more engagement and feedback from the newsletter audience. It’s really a wonderful community. A common piece of feedback I receive is that it’s great to hear an Australian voice amongst so much American content. So with that in mind, I’ve done a bit of research on some Australian based newsletters. If you are an email newsletter fan like me, perhaps these might be a good addition to your feed.

Raising Hell

A fortnightly newsletter put out by Australian journalist Royce Kurmelovs. Explores topics often adjacent to the mainstream with a nice amount of depth.

Dense Discovery

Cassandra

A global operation with a team in Melbourne, this one will keep you up to date with the latest trends. It comes out 5 days per week, which is a little too frequent for my liking but it’s a polished newsletter that’s worth checking out.
