💜 🙌 💜 Welcome to Assemble!October 30, 2017 at 7:29pm (Edited 3 years ago)
Some of you may recognize Andy as the other half of XOXO, an experimental festival for independent artists who work on the internet.
Previously, Andy organized Build, and published The Manual, both for designers who work on the internet. Now he's teamed up with Spec.fm to launch the Assemble podcast about building events that bring people together and forming communities with shared values.
This channel is for you to ask questions, discuss the podcast episodes and share events / communities that inspire you.

Thank you, Sarah! I'm really excited to be part of the network 😊
Assemble will probably be a little bit different to other Spec shows. Right now I'm working on the first 6 episodes which will comprise the first season; all stories centered around communities and people who work to bring other people together.
I'm working on stories around activism, online communities, unintentional community spaces, fan communities and fandoms, the history of social contracts, and neighborhoods.
I've been and will continue to be reporting progress through my Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/andymcmillan —where you can also support the show and maybe also occasionally I'll send you goodies in the mail.
Questions, comments, wildly effusive compliments, ideas for stories, or anything else—I'd love to hear 'em!
Thanks, ya'll! 💛
