For those who might’ve missed our announcement on Thursday, The Burgundy Zine is launching a Kickstarter this month to fund our upcoming merch store!

We’re so excited to KICK off this next part of our journey and feel honored to take these first steps with you.

Before we get too sentimental, let’s jump into our weekly recap.

Weekly Recap

We began this week with a look at how discarded bottles and containers in the forests affect ant colonies.

On Monday, Peter discussed how the coronavirus pandemic has affected the education system and the actions that’ll need to take place as students transition back into brick and mortar schools.

On Tuesday, we tuned-in to an interview with the London-based alternative rock band Neuromantics to learn more about their debut album, “Crimes of Passion.”

Then, we tuned-in to indie artist Treasure’s EP, “Suffocation & Air.”

On Wednesday, we announced the upcoming Burgundy Zine Merch Store campaign on Kickstarter, which launches on May 21.

You can be among the first to receive a notification when The Burgundy Zine Kickstarter launches: just click here and make sure you press “Notify me on launch!”

Afterward, experts from Nordpass shared their latest research, which revealed that most Americans find password management “more stressful than retirement.”

On Thursday, we dove into the science behind blue flowers, why they aren’t common in nature, and how breeders are creating their own blue flowers.

On Friday, we shared a few ways you can celebrate National Strawberry Month despite being stuck inside.

Then, California-based medical supplier Hardy Diagnostics shared information about their COVID-19 Antibody rapid test kit that recently received FDA Emergency Use Authorization.

Last – but most certainly far from least – we published our recent interview with Henry Salas, the artist who paints portraits using only his mouth.

Going Forward

We’re going to continue to accepting content submissions for the next issue of our digital magazine, “The Burgundy Zine #15” through May 21. You can learn more about this upcoming issue and how to submit your content for it here.

Additionally, we’re going to release another Kickstarter update this week, so keep an eye out!

In the meantime, we encourage you to get creative, send us your submissions, and help us spread the word about The Burgundy Zine Merch Store campaign. Your support means the world to us and more.

Until next week,
