Dive In


Sitting by Mark’s side for these 14 years has been the honour and privilege of a lifetime. Mark is a true visionary and a caring leader.

A birthday holiday heads up: It was splainer’s birthday yesterday, June 1. Each year, the team takes a day to retreat and bond around this time. This year, we’ll be doing it on Friday, June 3. So we will not be publishing an edition tomorrow:)


​​Stuff to check out: On the latest episode of the splainer podcast ‘Press Decode’, the splainer team looks at how easy it is to get a gun in India—and the meme-ification of the Depp/Heard trial. Be sure to head over to the IVM website, Spotify or Apple Podcasts to listen to it.
