Lakshmi Chaudhry

Founder, Splainer Media

Lakshmi Chaudhry is the founder of India’s Splainer, which she dubs Newsletter 2.0. Prior to this, Chaudhry forayed into journalism with Wired.com, co-founded Firstpost, before starting Broadsheet, a newsletter targeted primarily at women, in 2018.

Splainer came about in June 2020 as a response to the crowded, rapid-fire Internet news cycle that persists today, backed by a sound business model. It goes against the drone-like format of everyday news, with intelligent and empathetic content punctuated with humour.
