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.
