On MAEKAN It Up #028, we delve into the idea of Apple pivoting into a hardware subscription service. Would you subscribe to the opportunity to have access to a full suite of Apple products, with all the fixings such as AppleCare, iCloud, and insurance thrown in? We also discuss new-found tools for journalism that focus on gamification. What does this mean for storytelling and when is it applicable?

Per usual, MAEKAN It Up features the individual illustrative talents of Charis and Eugene as they visualize the show's topics. Be inspired as you watch Eugene slowly improve week to week.

MAEKAN It Up draws from our topical newsletter “the Briefing,” published twice a week. You can subscribe to MAEKAN It Up and other audio stories via your favorite podcast app or platform.
