Whew! Following the release of “The Burgundy Zine #14: Healing,” we’ve jumped right into the topic for our next issue – “Go Green.”

We’re excited to begin our two-month celebration of mother Earth and encourage you to join our embrace of the big blue marble we inhabit.

Now, let’s jump into our recap of this week.

Weekly Recap

We began this week by introducing you to MeetHook, an app that connects users with music, entertainment, sports, and business professionals around the world through live video sessions.

On Tuesday, we tuned-in to a very personal interview with Balcony Talk. Then, Future Misters shared the meaning behind their single “Tension” with us through a guest post.

On Wednesday, we sprang into April by discussing how you can participate in National Garden Month while social distancing.

Afterward, we shared information about BevMap, a platform for restaurants, bars, and wineries to promote their delivery and curbside options without any fees for using the site.

On Thursday, we released a guide on how to use Animal Crossing amiibo cards to move your favorite villagers onto your island in “Animal Crossing: New Horizons.”

Then, Australian artist Natalia Bennett discussed our role in climate change and how we can reshape it through politics in her article, “Human Impact.”

On Friday, we learned more about MeetHook through our interview with founder Anthony Citrinite and MeetHook president Michael Moorin.

Afterward, we released information about the next issue of our digital magazine, “The Burgundy Zine #15: Go Green.”

On Saturday, Julie Singh offered 10 ways to stay physically and mentally active while social distancing.

Then, we spoke to Sky Island Alliance program director Emily Burns to learn about the organization’s study of how wildlife could be impacted by the Trump border wall.

Going Forward

Going forward, we welcome you to take part in our next issue of The Burgundy Zine, which you can learn more about here.

We’re eager to have these much-needed discussions about the environment and look forward to having these discussions with you.

In the meantime, we hope you’re staying healthy and staying safe. We’d also like to take a moment to acknowledge and thank those who are on the frontlines of the ongoing pandemic, from our doctors to our nurses, to our medical marijuana dispensary and grocery store workers. Your sacrifices are immeasurable, brave, and incredibly noble.

We send our hearts out to our audience, their loved ones, and the entire world during this time period. Thank you – for everything.

Until next week,
