Dive In

A near collision with a drilling ship, two capsizes, lots of peanut butter and Nutella consumed, visits from dolphins and a world record breaker. Jasmine has safely made it to #Antigua.

That tweet marked the final triumphant update on Jasmine Harrison’s solo 3,000-mile journey from Spain to Antigua which took 70 days, 3 hours and 48 minutes. She is now the youngest woman to ever sail across the Atlantic. She accomplished the feat by alternately sleeping and rowing every two hours. Asked what she wanted most when she stepped ashore, Harrison said: "Food. Definitely food."

Big Story

Editor’s note: We didn’t really have a big news story to explain today, so we thought we would instead focus on the biggest story of all:)


Splainer & you: A love story

The TLDR: This is the story of how we got here thanks to your love for splainer. But more importantly, it is also a call out to all of you to come write the next chapter with us. 


Origin story

We launched splainer in early June, in the midst of the hellish early months of the pandemic. I’d shut down my earlier venture at the end of March. And to start over again within a few months seemed like madness or… madness. Yet I took that absurd leap of faith without a paisa to our name, armed only with a belief in our vision and (above all) our amazing team. 

Then a magical thing happened...
