apple, music business, piper payne, royalties, spotify
Ahead of our episode tomorrow with Piper Payne, where we talk all sorts of topics including artists' royalties, we wanted to highlight something with Apple Music announcing that they pay double what Spotify and other services do — for the songs we love and whose artist's work we want to support. It's eye opening, for sure.

"Many of you have expressed outrage, sadness and frustration over the increasing violence that’s happening toward Asian Americans.

asian violence, stop asian hate
How This Works doesn't necessarily focus on current events, our aim is to learn from people about their expert subject matters, but with reports of harassment and violence aimed at Asians, we stand in solidarity and mourn with our brothers & sisters to #StopAsianHate.
There are a ton of resources online but a good place to start is Stop AAPI Hate's latest national report, tracking anti-AAPI hate incidents so far during the COVID-19 pandemic. Read the full report on their website: https://a1w.90d.myftpupload.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/210312-Stop-AAPI-Hate-National-Report-.pdf
We love our Asian community. And together, we must all stand against hate — whether that's against Asians, BIPOC, women, or any humans. #StopAAPIHate #EnoughIsEnough #EndRacismNow #NotYourModelMinority #RacialJustice #generationz #Organize #Representation #aapi #asianamerican #socialjustice #changeisgood
