It has taken a lot of work and testing but the BarfiCulture Weekly Digest is finally getting off the ground. Not that any of you will care about the blood, sweat and tears

Anyway, hello and welcome to the first proper Barfi newsletter. With Facebook trying to ignore news publishers, email is still our preferred way of reaching out to people.

If you like this, please consider forwarding it to others.

Until next week!
