Think pieces to spark inspiration, conversation, and new ideas.

The Noodler is an independent platform uniquely curated through the lens of women thinkers, researchers, strategists, and creatives with an eye for contextualizing the present and forecasting the future. Each publication explores an overarching theme from a multitude of perspectives - from the philosophical and scientific to personal and professional.

The Noodler exists in opposition to the hyper-paced, thumb-scrolling, attention-shrinking fare that infiltrates our feeds and in-boxes. This is slow content - based on cultural research and observational insights - meant to be contemplated, discussed, savored and shared.

We proudly pay our contributors, designers, and editors.


Who started The Noodler? 

The Noodler is published by The Noodle Collective - a woman-owned consultancy located in Ojai, California, and curated by Brady Hahn - the founder of The Noodle Collective, and cultural strategist Rebecca McQuigg Rigal, the founder of Kindher.co.

How are the themes selected?

Themes are chosen based on reviewing trend research and cultural insights - serving as a time capsule and can be combined with future issues for deeper exploration. 

How are contributors selected? 

Contributors represent a variety of backgrounds and perspectives. Our team researches contributors based on their areas of expertise and unique lens on the theme, and their availability to contribute.
