Hello, friends!

I'm going to start this Doppio off with a blanket reminder in these difficult times to take good care of yourself, whatever that means for you.

If your self-care includes a content dive, this week's double shot of content greatness comes to us from Steyer writer, Maria Renninger. She writes:

Many of us who work in content got our start in news organizations and have witnessed the grit and resilience that solid reporting requires. I can't claim much there—I interned one semester for PBS NewsHour. But in those months, I met many reporters from local community newspapers who taught me about underreported issues and the disproportionate energy needed to cover them. Julie Pham's essay, "What Ends During the Pandemic Starts Again Somewhere Else," relates the heartache, blessings, and sheer physical labor involved in transforming Northwest Vietnamese News—which her family has published since 1986—from a storefront operation to a home business. The essay shows "what it feels like to be a part of a community that shares whatever it has."

If you love springtime and the way it hints at summer but don't see how opera could enhance that loveliness, tune into soprano Tess Altiveros singing "love is when my mommy makes my daddy coffee" as part of the Seattle Opera's Songs of Summer series. That line appears in "Love Is," a piece by Emerson Eads featuring extremely short, extremely real songs of love. It starts at 8:09, between works by Poulenc and Schubert. Altiveros performs at opera houses around the world and is on faculty at Seattle University, but she's also my daughter's voice teacher. Sitting at my desk overhearing them practice together makes me feel like I'm in a meadow!

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.
