Our 10 Must-Read Stories — the OZY Highlight Reel
WHY YOU SHOULD CARE
From freaky fine dining to fake March Madness, here’s the best of OZY this week.
First, we hope this weekend finds you well. As we weather the coronavirus pandemic, we have been surfacing stories to help you not only stay informed but also sane (here’s a video parody that might bring a smile to your face –– just remember not to touch it!).
This week we learned about the challenges of self-isolating in a homeless shelter, as well how the virus could affect national security. And, as we practice social distancing, we discovered how to get access to free concerts and art online, engage in fake March Madness and make sound investments à la Warren Buffett.
But it’s not all about the pandemic. We introduced you to both a new sense-arousing way to experience fine dining and the man who could be the next big TV host. Here are our favorites on OZY this week.
