Think better. Make smarter progress in your life and career. Find your focus.

Our goal at Farnam Street is to help you go to bed every night smarter than you were when you woke up. Every day, thousands of people turn to us for the kind of multidisciplinary education you can’t get anywhere else. 

But we know you’re always looking for more. More wisdom, more insights, more practical guidance, more opportunities to learn from the best. That’s why we created the Farnam Street membership: a unique space free of distraction or noise, home to a curated selection of exclusive content designed with care to help you master the best of what other people have already figured out.

By becoming a member, you’ll gain access to hundreds of additional pieces of Farnam Street content as well as regular opportunities to learn from some of the smartest people around. It’s similar to what you get on the blog, podcast, newsletter and elsewhere – only deeper, more practical, and more targeted at helping you accelerate your learning. 

Joining Farnam Street as a member is also a great way to support our work and help us keep putting out all of our amazing free content. We truly couldn’t do it without our members.

“The Learning Community repeatedly invites me to expand how I see and think. The level of IQ and EQ members offer is unprecedented and has me visiting daily.”

What’s Inside?

Farnam Street Members get perks that aren’t available anywhere else. This private trove is brimming with valuable resources to help you get answers, make better decisions, and take advantage of opportunities.

Here’s a small taste of what you’ll get.

Early Access to Episodes

Members get early access to podcast episodes before anyone else.

Ad-Free Versions of The Knowledge Project

With a unique subscriber feed, you gain access to ad-free versions of the show.

Hand-Edited Transcripts

Subscribers get hand-edited transcripts of episodes allowing them to accelerate their learning, take notes, and reference shows later without having to re-listen to the entire episode.

An Exclusive Community

You’ll find private networking opportunities with amazing authors, executives, and entrepreneurs. Join any of a number of active threads dedicated to accelerating your personal growth and development — questions, answers, and everything in between.

Courses to Master Your Productivity

When you join the Farnam Street Membership, you also get free access to The Art of Reading, Productivity that Gets Results, and The Art of Focus. Thousands of students have used these courses to read more deeply, focus on what really matters, and avoid costly mistakes.

Ask Me Anything (AMA) Sessions

Get personalized advice and answers to your burning questions in monthly AMA sessions with authors, entrepreneurs, coaches, investors, and others who are making a big splash in their fields. Past guests have included James Clear, Gretchen Rubin, Nir Eyal, Ryan Holiday, Josh Kaufman, Susan David, and many more. AMAs are available as podcast episodes, videos, and transcripts

Subscriber-Only Content

We created the “FS Guide” series to capture advice, wisdom, and tactics from those who have already figured these things out (or failed and learned from it!). As well as MEMBERS-ONLY BONUS ARTICLES - An extensive, ever-growing collection of original articles on topics such as relationships, leadership, decision-making, investing, and more. It’s similar to what you get on the blog, except deeper, more practical, and targeted at helping you improve at whatever you’re learning right now. We add new material every month and you’ll also have access to the full back-catalog.

[Farnam Street] does a really remarkable job of looking at culture, history, and interesting books … I check this almost every day.
