Dive In


It’s the perfect liquid gold and currently we just flush it down the toilet.

That’s what Australian researchers say about a new trial of “urine diversion toilets.” These divert excretions of potassium, phosphorus and nitrogen in human urine—and convert them into cheap and sustainable fertiliser for parks.

Editor’s note: Our edition is a little late today primarily because we had to wait until the early morning to pull together our budget-themed explainer.


Splainer is hiring! We are looking for a smart, scrappy and innovative growth manager with 2-3 years experience. Understanding data and using it to craft an effective marketing strategy is a must. As is finding nimble and innovative ways to grow our audience—be it via events, product tweaks or building communities. Above all, we are looking for someone who really gets splainer—and what it takes to grow a unique news service like ours. What won’t work for us: someone who thinks marketing is an Insta campaign. Please note: This is location-agnostic, at least for the next six months. Want to jump on this crazy ride with us? Reach out to us at talktous@splainer.in.
