Dive In

 

One of the best shots I ever hit.

That’s what Matt Fitzpatrick said about the shot that helped him clinch the US Open golf championship—and his first major title. The astonishing shot travelled 160 yards from a fairway bunker to 18 feet on the 18th hole in the final round (watch it here). 

 

Splainer is hiring: We are hiring for a key position in our editorial team to join the brilliantly talented splainer fam. The job includes daily editorial responsibilities, co-hosting our podcast plus working closely with our brand partners. Unlike the average newsroom gig, this is a lot more than the standard writing/editing job. Here’s what we’re looking for:

 

  • Impeccable writing, editing and researching skills—with a big emphasis on the last bit. We pride ourselves on the quality of information we offer our readers.
  • 1-2 years of experience—though not necessarily in journalism. But if you don’t have a passion for news this is likely not the job for you.
  • A knowledge of and love for splainer is a huge plus—since we’re not the usual news product. 
  • Willingness to work in a startup environment where we all do a bit of everything—and are eager to take initiative and responsibility.

 

Please note there is a six-month probation period—and the job includes ESOP incentives after the first year. We are location-agnostic and an equal opportunity employer. And we pride ourselves on a warm, friendly work culture. Please send your resumes and cover letter—telling us why you want this job—to talktous@splainer.in.

Lame duck president: Emmanuel Macron gets a rude surprise

The TLDR: Just months after being reelected as president, Macron has lost his ruling majority in the parliament—robbing him of legislative power. The effects of his loss, however, will have a wider impact on EU support for the Ukraine war—which may well be eroded as member nations grapple with more pressing issues at home. Here’s a super-quick guide to what happened and why the rest of us care.
