Episode 106: The Business of Newsletters (ft. Jason Schulweis & Jacob Donnelly from the Morning Brew)

This week on Floor 9, we are talking business. The business of newsletters, that is. Joined by Jason Schulweis and Jacob Donnelly from one of our favorite newsletters Morning Brew, we talked about how independent newsletter companies are competing against big news publications, the rise of Substack and personality-driven newsletters, and the recent entrances of Twitter and Facebook into the space.

Before the main conversation, co-hosts Adam and Scott discuss the top news of a slow news week, which includes HBO Max’s upcoming ad-supported tier and Clubhouse’s new accelerator program.
