The World of OZY … Through Fay's Eyes
WHY YOU SHOULD CARE
Managing Editor Fay Schlesinger looks back on her favorite features from 2018.
By OZY Editors
It’s been a big year for OZY, and for me personally. When I think back to what made me move 5,360 miles from Great Britain to California and from The Times of London to OZY this summer, it comes down in part to … houseflies.
After being introduced to OZY and starting to follow its content avidly, I came across this story about why Ugandans had fallen in love with houseflies and was taken by the unusual entry point to a weighty global issue.
Compelling stories, told thoughtfully and articulately and accompanied by stunning video, visuals and audio, are what I most enjoy about OZY. I’m also incredibly proud of our newest and most of-the-moment TV show, Take On America, and of The Thread podcast, which traces the surprising connection between various historic figures or events each season.
As we enter the New Year, I hope you get as much curiosity-piquing pleasure from OZY as I do — and relish our 2019 offerings even more (with or without houseflies).
