Joe Pubic is curious about everything.

"Joe Public" is a name used to describe a representative member of the general public. A citizen.

Why is Joe Public curious about everything?

Curiosity is the ability to seek and acquire new knowledge, skills, and ways of understanding the world. It's just that simple. Here are some quotes about curiosity.


My name is Robert. I'm a member of the general public and I'm curious about everything.

Every day I go through tons digital content — articles, newsletters, podcasts, videos, books — on a variety of subjects from across the web. When I find something interesting, I post it on the Joe Public website. Everything I write and link to is content I believe you might find interesting as well.

Then twice a month I share the most compelling of that content, what I believe is well worth your time, in the Joe Public Newsletter. Newsletter subscribers also receive content I don’t put on the website.

Private equity has bought up and sucked the lifeblood from some of the best sites on the web. Much of the internet has become an increasingly fast, furious, noisy world consumed with breaking news, misleading click-bait headlines, and popup ads. The Joe Public website and newsletter is for people who want something different. It is not run by time-waisting algos, bots, or a startup force-feeding empty-calories of content in an effort to keep viewers from leaving their social media platform. Every recommendation on Joe Public is hand-chosen by me, an insatiably curious human.

Why a newsletter?

Email is still one of the best ways to build and maintain a community with subscribers around the world.

The weekly Joe Public Newsletters allows me to stay in touch with the community while bringing attention to great content around the web. And while everything feels like a hurricane, the newsletter allows subscribers to digest the content at their own pace.

The beauty of a newsletter is that I can write about things I find interesting without having to worry if it will perform well on Twitter or Facebook, and then you decide — instead of a Facebook algorithm — whether or not it’s interesting to you.

How often do you send the Joe Public Newsletter?

I send it out twice a month.

Is the Joe Public Newsletter free?

Yes, it is free!

If I do decide to charge a small monthly fee, it will be for the additional editions.

Stay up-to-date

I hope you are well,
