Big news: Vox is bringing the Weeds newsletter back, just in time to announce the start of President Joe Biden’s term. You can and should register here.
With the Democrats now in full control of the White House, House and Senate, and with the country grappling with multiple crises, there is a lot to do for Covid-19, the economy, healthcare, climate change, infrastructure, democracy, and more . As the Biden Administration prepares, this newsletter will help you understand and deepen an unprecedented outbreak of political decisions.
Every Friday I’ll break down what’s going on in terms of politics and why it’s important. Sometimes I focus on the topic that is making headlines this week. Sometimes I write on a topic that needs more attention. I’ll also share new research with you, answer your questions, and point you to the best political journalism I’ve read this week. The plan is to cover the first 100 days of Biden’s presidency, looking at politics and how it will affect us all.
For those who don’t know me: I’m German Lopez, a senior correspondent here at Vox. You’ve probably heard my voice on the Weeds podcast, which discussed FBI issues from marijuana legalization to health care. Now I’m going to do my best to turn the ethos of the podcast into newsletter form.
Sign up here and see you on Fridays.
