…the first thing I read every morning is the newsletter to see what’s been out there. It’s great to have an aggregator that pulls everything together so nicely.

I think that the email newsletter that you do every morning is the best one that I get, and I get a lot of them.

Really is the best daily urban newsletter out there.
