Our Newsletter Service Is Busted, So Everyone Gets To Read The Newsletter Today

logo for The Cipher, your daily Defector newsletter

Hey everyone! Lauren Theisen here. Some of you already know this, but on weekdays at 4 p.m. ET, I usually send out a newsletter to our premium Pal and Accomplice subscribers. It rounds up Defector's best writing of the day and also includes a few bonus features that don't make it onto the actual site.

Today, however, the service we use to send those emails appears to be a casualty of the day's big Internet outage. As a result, while I was able to create the newsletter, I am currently unable to do anything else with it.

Luckily, I at least have a link to the finished product. So that's our workaround. Enjoy, and thanks for bearing with us.
