Dive In


Brought to you by The Signal

I always did love Australia, though.

That’s what tennis legend Serena Williams said after crashing out of the US Open—losing to Ajla Tomljanovic on Friday.  Many expect that this is likely her last outing since she’s been strongly hinting at retirement. And she certainly got a big emotional farewell from the crowd (see here). But the quip about Australia—a reference to the Australian Open coming up in January—may signal that she’s not done, after all. Meanwhile, when the lesser known Tomljanovic was asked about being a part of history—and potentially a future trivia question in a pub quiz—she offered this brilliant reply: “No one's going to pronounce my name right.”


A note from our brand sponsor today: We get the irony of promoting a podcast on a visual medium. Just like we get the irony of Netflix’s ad binge, Big Oil going green or Pixar’s Disney problem. 


Then again,‘The Signal Daily’ is a news podcast like no other. We don’t just read out headlines. We offer sharp insights in 10 minutes or less.

We plumb headlines—both Indian and international—that cover the gamut from cryptocurrencies to geopolitics. And weed out clutter from relevant information. Because let’s face it.

Big Story

Farewell, Cyrus Mistry: Sad end to an ugly Tatas story

The TLDR: Mistry was killed in a car accident yesterday—putting an unhappy end to his long and bitter battle with the Tatas—where he once was chairman. Ratan Tata who anointed him as his heir to the corporate throne—and then unceremoniously kicked him out—has still not uttered a word of condolence.
