Today we talked to Delia Cai, who is the proprietor of the wonderful Substack Deez Links and a growth and trends editor at Buzzfeed. We talked about go-to orders at Dimes, content strategy, why she’s optimistic about the future of the media, the pernicious feeling of needing to catch up to your peers, knowing when things reach their natural end, what it’s like to be in the Substack game, and much more. Arjun and Kevin also had the debate of the century: Vaccine posting etiquette. Thanks for listening.
