10 tickets to ThinkIns, the engine of open journalism. Tortoise members participate in open news conferences, live and unscripted in our newsroom.
The news not as it happens, but when it’s ready. The slow news feed lands in the app, online or in your inbox.
Tortoise quarterly is a short book of long reads. Modern fables, true tales, old stories re-examined, new ones revealed.
A taste of our journalism
We are focused on the Big Five forces that are shaping our lives, our societies, our world.
Our upcoming digital ThinkIns
Whilst the newsroom remains closed, Tortoise holds digital ThinkIns every day. Right now, it’s more important than ever that we get together – albeit virtually – to make sense of what’s happening. Digital ThinkIns are free and open to everybody. Take a look at what’s on and click “register” to sign up.
We just need a few personal details to get you set up. It’s a two minute job, we promise. Make sure you have your promo code to hand that your Tortoise friend gave you.
Hurrah, you’re registered.
Please let us be the first to wish you a very warm welcome to the Tortoise family.
We’ve just sent you an email confirmation. Check it’s not ended up in your junk folder because it’s always handy to keep these things isn’t it?
What our members are saying
I can already highly recommend @Tortoise. It’s the news equivalent of dipping your head in a cool, glacier-fresh stream on a scorching-hot day.
Went to my first @Tortoise ThinkIn last night on gender. A really fun eve – full of lively comment & a totally inclusive atmosphere. Not at all like a traditional panel event.
