Our Story

The Brew is a platform centered on authentic conversations and a supportive community

The story behind The Brew originated from the travels of Free Logic’s co-founder, Valtteri (Val) Salomaki, as he enjoyed coffee or beer chats with locals from all around the world.

He wanted to have authentic conversations to challenge his views, while learning valuable tips to help navigate his life. Upon returning from his travels, Val brought up the idea to his co-founder of Free Logic, Nikhil Mehrotra, of providing a platform where others can challenge their perspectives, while learning valuable information.

Soon after, they decided to start a podcast with the help of Nick Saldivar. Over time, as the Free Logic team grew, so did the vision behind the platform.

Now, instead of a podcast, The Brew is a full platform aiming to challenge and expand the perspectives of traditional ways of thought, while providing a supportive community that can help others navigate their life journey.
