(Couldn't find a similar thread, so forgiveness in advance, if there is one)

I used to love listening to Richard's weekly addresses.

Does Ed do anything similar by phone, or is it strictly internal/nonexistent now?

"Ask Ed Anything" is something he does often

Yeah but it's mostly about the differences between carrots and apples, and he keeps talking about Wilbur.

Wait that's "Ask Mr. Ed Anything"

I think Ask Ed Anything is internal, only because many questions are focused on employee relations.

I firmly believe in the division of labor. The CEO has no business addressing the public. That a job for public relations specialists who know what they are doing. Mr. Bastion is doing a much better job than Anderson in those regards. Anderson was a loose cannon who said some incredibly stupid things. It looks like the new CEO has chosen to take a much better approach.

What about Ed's Newsfeed? Oh wait that's also internal.. Hmm. I think he does have a memo going on, but I'll have to do some more looking.
And, yes, Ask Ed Anything is internal, it's basically weekly Q&As from DL employees which he will answer. I actually find the answers to be quite sincere and on point in that respect.
