Hi <<First Name>>, 

This issue is a light one, probably because it's actually summer in Chicago (at least for the next 72 hours) and that's all I can think about.

If you're looking for something to listen to besides Gucci Mane this weekend, take a moment to listen to the first six (!) issues of The Highwater Podcast. Here's the website link, the iTunes link and the Overcast link (great for web and Android listeners).

I've also included a few funding opportunities that have deadlines next week in the Toolbox section below.

Hoping you find beauty in rest as well as progress,

P.S. Like us on Facebook and Twitter :)
