The Chatty Mammoth enables your child to:

Impress in interviews

“If I had more time, I would have written a shorter letter”. Learning to write concisely is difficult. Exposure to our summaries helps your child learn the art of summarisation.

Naturally discover their interests

We provide a hugely diverse set of subjects, allowing your child to naturally uncover their true interests.

Become familiar with novel ideas

By embracing ideas beyond the school curriculum, you’re helping expand your child’s breadth of knowledge, allowing for more sophisticated thought and conversation.

What do you actually get?

An easy way to provide your child with an educational edge

Each day, you and your child will receive an email with summaries of 3 thought-provoking articles chosen by our team of writers.

Each article meets the following criteria:

  • Exposure to new topics – The Chatty Mammoth is designed to introduce your child to topics that they wouldn’t normally encounter.
  • Talking-point content – We only supply stimulating articles that provoke new thoughts and questions.
  • Produced by niche publishers – We purposefully avoid articles from the ‘large players’ in the media industry, simultaneously providing rare content and supporting independent writers.
Our writers summarise each article into under 90 words (meaning the whole email can be read in less than 2 minutes), and ensure that there is one central takeaway for each piece.

Note: whilst we are positioning The Chatty Mammoth as a service for your teenager/child, we do have adult customers who read our emails for their own self-enjoyment.

How the Contradictions of Socialism Make Cuban Art Great

In Cuba, where scientists and artists alike lineup for stale bread and chicken, the arts flourish. Cubans are not hesitant to study the arts and make a living out of being musicians, dancers, artists, or comedians, because it’s not fiscally irresponsible to do so. To promote the arts, every neighbourhood has its own casa de cultura, where anyone can, for free, learn the core principles of Cuban art. One of the more amusing principles is ensuring the artists “keep the censors busy.”

Artificial Intelligence Restores Mutilated Rembrandt Painting

In 1715, “The Night Watch” painting by Rembrandt was mutilated to fit on one of the walls of Amsterdam’s City Hall. It was cut down, and the fragments were lost to time. However, through the magic of AI, it was partially restored; three neural networks (machine learning systems) were trained to “paint” pieces derived from another painter’s copy, in the style of Rembrandt. Although they seem to have succeeded, the fragments won’t be a permanent addition out of respect for the old master.

An Enterprise of Solid Gold

In the 1700s, prior to copyright laws, piracy was a respectable business. “Take a book that is selling well, reprint it…then haul in the profit.” But, whilst not illegal, pirating literature was still a risky enterprise; if a copied book was printed too late, it was likely that the demand would have passed. Even so, it was a risk that businessmen were willing to take, especially when Voltaire himself encouraged piracy of his work. 

Hint: a lot of our customers like to use our summaries as dinner-time topics of conversation.
