Core Intuition Slack Board Fri, 10 Apr 2015 20:27:47 +0000 Since the unfortunate demise of Glassboard, Core Intuition listeners haven’t enjoyed a go-to place for discussing the show, proposing topics, or just getting to know one another.

In some respects Slack may be an even better solution for our particular needs than Glassboard was. With high hopes that this is true, we finally got around to setting up a team specifically for Core Intuition fans. It’s open to the public, and you just have to request an automatic invitation to get the ball rolling on your membership.

We look forward to building upon the significant community we have attracted through the podcast and the jobs site. See you on Slack!
