Before SWEN, news was a way of understanding the world and current affairs but you had to tune in, staying up to date manually. With no way of fact-checking or interacting with the content, journalists or stories. Our goal is to flip this one way model on it’s head. So instead of having to watch the news. The news will begin looking for you.
