Hello, friends!

Spring is finally springing, it would seem. Don't forget to stop and smell the blooms, if you can, both literally and metaphorically speaking.

This week's double shot of content greatness comes to us from Steyer writer and Doppio editor, Chloe Olewitz. That's me! Enjoy:

For word nerds, Mapologies is a treasure trove of fun discoveries. The blog traces geographical linguistic differences to chart out the words humanity uses to talk about popular topics. Some of the coded maps trace the etymology and gender of words like "coronavirus" and "vaccine," while others tackle pop culture by mapping out regional references to for Mickey Mouse, The Flinstones, and The Smurfs. If you're feeling celebratory, check out the map of how to say "cheers" around the world.

I've long been a fan of Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn's banjo duets, so I had a great time watching their playful performance as part of NPR's Alone Together series. It always feels like a real treat to see artists in action with my own eyes after falling for them in the first place through my ears. And particularly now, when live shows and concerts still seem like a distant fantasy, witnessing a little magic between musicians feels extra special. With Fleck on the banjo and Washburn on the bass banjo, the duo put a blues spin on "My Home's Across The Blue Ridge Mountains."

Onward,

Doppio is a weekly missive from Steyer Content, originated by Katelyn Reilly, Steyer's Chief Operating Officer. This cup brims forth with two concentrated shots of content greatness; we’ll never use it to sell you anything, including Steyer’s services. Doppio exists purely to connect content people with content, in a time when it’s incredibly easy to forget why we do what we do.
