I usually live in a box

I’m terrible and known for not reading the news. This is a easy to digest update and also not depressing like a lot of news at the moment

Andy Elms ,

Get Smart

An espresso sized fix of current affairs delivered in time for your morning commute down the hallway. Seven news stories in seven minutes (21 state mandated length hand washes) delivered with a light and breezy style that helps you face the day, or at least seem more aware of the outside world to your Zoom workmates.

Rodge1978 ,

Perfect way to get the morning news

without the horrible stress!
