What’s real news? If you’re ad supported how can you be 100% unbiased if you rely upon serving the needs on your advertisers?

Congrats on the raise, @awwstn and @jason. Newsletters are underrated. I know you've experimented with SMS-based news. How has that gone?

@jason @rrhoover it was very popular for power users, but it didn't grow beyond a small niche. (growth on an SMS list is much harder...no easy forwarding/sharing). We definitely may explore this again, but for the time-being we're focused on email...which is working really well!

Been subscribed to the Apple one for a few months and I love it 👌

Pros:

Concise important digest sent daily to my mailbox

Cons:

🤷‍♂️

More than happy with the service. I am subscribed to 6 different newsletters.

Pros:

It's human curated and it's way better than automated services like Google Trends. Also it's free and covers a lot of different topics.

Cons:

None.
