Welcome to Madison Minutes! We create local news products that make your life easier.

Our flagship morning newsletter is sent via email every weekday morning and features a mix of original and aggregated journalism. We also send a weekly events roundup newsletter that highlights interesting local events.

Our team consists of two people (Sam and Hayley). We co-founded Madison Minutes in April 2021, and we operate without national advertisers or outside investors. That means we depend on local advertising and reader contributions to fund our work.

There’s no risk in signing up for our email updates – they’re free, and you can unsubscribe at any time. Here’s what we promise our subscribers:

  • We will tell the truth. We will tell you the facts, in context, as best we can. If we make a mistake, we will promptly correct it.
  • We will listen to you. We want to hear your thoughts on how to make Madison Minutes better.
  • We will respect your time. Brevity is beautiful. We provide information in an easily skimmable way so you can catch up on the news and move on with your day.
