Hi PH 👋🏾, I’m Snigdha, founder of The Juggernaut. 🤩What we do: We release one new story a weekday and tell the untold South Asian stories that you need to know — from the Subtle Curry Traits Facebook group to comedian Hari Kondabolu to the erasure of Freddie Mercury’s brownness. We charge less than $5/month and new subscribers get a free week trial and we have an awesome PH discount in the works. 🤔Why I built this: I didn't see myself in the news: I’m Indian-American and grew up in New York. Being Indian wasn't cool growing up. With more South Asians in the news today, I realized I didn’t know what was going on in the region or with its people around the world. There was no global, inclusive, well-reported publication for South Asians, the fastest growing US demographic and the largest diaspora. 🚀How I started: Every weekend, as my side hustle, I’d write a weekly email newsletter curating the best articles on South Asia(ns) with my thoughts on a pressing issue, from the Harvard affirmative action lawsuit to South Asian representation in Crazy Rich Asians. The newsletter grew to the thousands. After doing this for a few months, I realized I was craving coverage I wasn't seeing in other publications. That’s why I decided to start The Juggernaut with our own reported stories. 📰Media is difficult. People like free content. We launched behind a paywall because it allows us to pay writers well and quickly. Happy to answer any questions/comments and can't wait to hear what you think! 🙌🏾Snigdha

Pros:

Great writing, great content

Cons:

An app pushing stories would be graet

A few sample headlines: Can Netflix Save Indian Television? Fighting to Make India's Cinemas Disability Friendly

Pros:

Interesting content in digestible sizes about a part of the world I didn't know much about, but always wanted to keep up with

Cons:

Have some version I can download easily (PDF? app?) to read offline while I'm on the Muni

Right amount of content

Pros:

The issues are current, the writing is on point and the design is crisp!

Cons:

What's not to like!

Worth paying for the quality, lack of ads and their desire to pay their contributors properly.

Pros:

Well written, insightful content about news people outside of mainstream news.

Cons:

App would be nice
