Happy Groundhog Day! As this article is being written, Punxsutawney Phil hasn’t determined how the rest of the season will play out, but we’re already bucking to deliver our weekly forecast for The Burgundy Zine.

Weekly Recap

We kicked off this week by tuning in to interviews with London-based indie artist Karima Francis and chiptune composer Doctor Octoroc.

By the final hours of Tuesday night, we released “The Burgundy Zine #13: Dawn of a New Decade,” a 110-page zine featuring what defined the last decade and a glimpse of what we’re looking forward to this decade.

On Thursday, we spoke with author and cognitive-behavioral therapist Crystal Ermon to learn more about her spiritual journey that led to her book, “Master Your Energy.”

On Friday, financial experts at Bankrate highlighted the ‘pink tax’ and how it costs women over $1,300 annually. We also published our monthly newsletter for January.

On Saturday, Wizcase educated us on the importance of online safety and the measures journalists can take to stay safe while browsing the web.

Then, we concluded our week by discussing how exercise boosts cardiovascular health in honor of American Heart Month.

Going Forward

Going forward, we have more content coming from our guest contributors and another interview for this week’s installment of Tune-In Tuesdays, so keep an eye and an ear out!

Furthermore, we’re right around the corner from releasing information on our next issue, “The Burgundy Zine #14: Healing,” which is scheduled for release on March 28th.

Although our next zine release is two months away, we’ll be busy as ever as we prepare to launch our merchandise store this spring.

In the meantime, we encourage you to show “The Burgundy Zine #13: Dawn of a New Decade” some love. You can read it on our website or download the full zine for free from Google Drive.

Pro tip: To really see the full effect of the zine, we recommend downloading the PDF and viewing it in a two-page format.

Until next week,
