In another Rising Tide Startups episode, we chat with Tellinga founder, Alex Kurkowski.  The idea for Tellinga surfaced when Alex noticed that, while working full time in his day job, all his free time started to slip away, along with relationships with friends and family.  To keep in touch, he started snail mailing them epistolary (literary/artisanal work in the form of letters) style illustrations.  He would draw pictures in story form and snail-mail them out to loved ones piece by piece over time. It was always a way to stay connected and create fun, personalized stories so that they could look forward to checking their mailboxes every day.  Thus, Tellinga was born.  Learn more at
