It’s not that we signed an open letter, or that Twitter & Google showed support, or the multitude of brands that are posting on social. If we want to remove the logjams holding us back as a community we must focus on understanding. For with it we have a platform to make the change we need.

This Dave Chappelle story told by Kenny Deforest is spot on, Dave is doing a show, riffing off headlines and police brutality is shouted out by someone in the audience. He dives in, give it a read.

Get educated and become part of the solution. Here’s a great end to end summary of the events.

Datapoints of note

See all our Covid-19 data here.

  • The FT found that subscribers who had been to physical events were more engaged online — they read more articles and visited more regularly — in the 4 months post-event than pre-event, and they remained higher.
  • Stitcher analyzed 10 years of podcast data and found Washington DC ranks #4 in listening hours for podcasts despite being the 13th biggest population in the US. Listening hours is on average 25 hours/month.
  • From the same study, the average podcast length has shortened by 2.4 minutes since 2013. Gen X makes up the biggest chunk of listeners.
  • 2.2m people are using Playstation Now vs Xbox Game Pass has 10m users. Quite the difference given Xbox has sold half as many Playstations. As both vie for the ‘Netflix of games’.
