At some point amidst the days that seem to blend together all too fluidly, summer has decided to remind us it’s just right around the corner with sunny skies and temperature highs of 85 degrees.

Stay cool and stay hydrated as we jump into this week’s recap.

Weekly Recap

We began this week with “Poems to Inspire Positivity Amidst the Coronavirus Pandemic” by Priti.

Then, we discussed a study of Californians’ attitudes during the 2012 to 2016 California drought and pondered, “climate change – do people need to see it in order to believe it?”

On Tuesday, we tuned-in to an interview with indie-musician Brudini to discuss the story behind his upcoming album, “From Lightness, Dark.”

Afterward, we tuned-in to alternative indie group Analog Kid’s debut single, “Time Bomb.”

On Wednesday, we released a follow-up article on what the future might look like for Greenland and its ice sheet, which has the potential to cause about 23-feet in sea-level rise if it completely melts.

On Thursday, we eagerly announced the launch of The Burgundy Zine Merch Store campaign on Kickstarter is just a few days away!

On Friday, Peter discussed how the coronavirus pandemic and stay at home orders have impacted millennials.

On Saturday, we reviewed Anita Oommen’s latest book, “3-Minute Inspirational Reflections for the Soul.”

Last, but most certainly not least, we introduced you to Burgundy Bug’s portfolio website, a platform where you can learn more about Burgundy Bug’s work as a freelance writer, commission her, and see a behind-the-scenes reflection on each issue of The Burgundy Zine.

Going Forward

Going forward, our Kickstarter launches this Thursday and will conclude on June 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!”

Thursday is also the submission deadline for The Burgundy Zine #15, which is scheduled for release on May 28. You can learn more about being featured in this issue of our digital magazine here.

In the meantime, we hope you have the opportunity to step outside and enjoy the summer weather, if only for just a few minutes. We send our love during this uncertain time period and are forever grateful for all of your support.

Until next week,
