Our new coronavirus explainer series launches today.
We’re excited to announce that today we’re launching a new show, Answered, focused entirely on the coronavirus. The show is designed to help answer common questions and provide clarity and insight in this confusing moment in time.
Each five- to six-minute episode is hosted by Vox’s Cleo Abram. You’ll recognize her from the great work she’s done with Vox’s short-form video team, and from our YouTube original series: Glad You Asked. In every episode of Answered she’ll talk to prominent experts, journalists, and professionals to help break down a specific topic and deliver a satisfying answer. And don’t worry, she’s doing it all in a safe, socially distant way from her living room.
Answered is the only show on Quibi entirely dedicated to covering the pandemic. We’re excited to bring more of Vox’s clear, concise coverage to another audience, in a brand new format. Exploring new, visual forms of storytelling has always been central to Vox’s approach to journalism, so continuing to evolve with Quibi is a natural next step.
If you haven’t already, you can download Quibi via the App Store on iOS and on the Google Play store. The app is currently free for the first 90 days, if you needed any further incentive. For the first two weeks the show will air Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, but then we’ll ramp up to five days a week.
If you have questions you’d like to send in to the show team, feel free — we’re at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope you enjoy the show, and as always, thank you for supporting Vox.
Support Vox’s explanatory journalism
Every day at Vox, we aim to answer your most important questions and provide you, and our audience around the world, with information that has the power to save lives. Our mission has never been more vital than it is in this moment: to empower you through understanding. Vox’s work is reaching more people than ever, but our distinctive brand of explanatory journalism takes resources — particularly during a pandemic and an economic downturn. Your financial contribution will not constitute a donation, but it will enable our staff to continue to offer free articles, videos, and podcasts at the quality and volume that this moment requires. Please consider making a contribution to Vox today.
