My CEO Matt Mullenweg appeared on NPR’s How I Built This, with Guy Raz. This is one of my favorite podcasts on the Internet, so this is a super prideful moment. Have a listen!
Rest Easy, John! 🙏💜
Sweet songs never last too long on broken radios. ~ Sam Stone ~ – John Prine
We’ve lost a legend. An American icon. His tunes will live on for generations. I’m too sad to wrote more, so I’ll share his music. They say that music heals and lord almighty do we need healing now. John Prine was a master. He will be deeply missed. Rest easy, John.
Design in the age of Coronavirus
One of my very talented friends designed these posters and I think they need mass distribution across America. Anyone have ideas? Kudos to Ben Ostrower from Wide Eye – really amazing work!
If you haven’t been following the #LiveFromHome challenge, I urge you to hop on social and check it out. There’s so much pandemic inspired amazing music happening and it’s incredible.
Below is the amazing Akie Bermiss (from Lake Street Dive) performing his piano version of Vanessa Williams hit song “Save the Best for Last”. IMHO, this is music at its best! Kudos, Akie!
How Does Obama’s 2008 Speech On Race Hold Up Today?
Sam Sanders did a great NPR piece this morning on then Senator Barack Obama’s race speech, which took place 12 years ago today. The radio piece is definitely worth a listen.
I’m going to rewatch the speech today. What a moment that was!

Thank you, Mayor Pete!
I’m a big fan of Mayor Pete Buttigieg and his husband, Chasten Buttigieg. Last night, Pete dropped out of the 2020 race for POTUS, but he has left an indelible mark on the 2020 primary and on the future of the Democratic Party. Bravo, Mayor Pete! Fair winds and following seas ahead!
