Hi friend!
I hope you’re doing well and are ready for another jam-packed newsletter to tickle your curiosity!
First up: It’s been 3 months since I last published a Simply Explained episode, but I finally managed to upload a new one. I’ve been struggling to create videos lately. I have a lot of ideas and half-baked scripts, but I just couldn’t finish anything. 
But not to fear: I already know what the next 2 videos will be about, and they’re going to be a bit different.
Secondly, the channel has just reached 300,000 subscribers. This is a huge milestone for me. When I started Simply Explained (about 5 years ago), the aim was to get to 100,000 subscribers. It seemed impossible. A goal too far to reach. But I kept my head down. I kept chipping away at it, and now I’m at three times that number!
I want to thank everyone who has supported me over the years. It really means a lot to me! Thank you.
Enjoy the newsletter,
Xavier
