theSkimm makes it easier to be smarter. Millions of people rely on the Daily Skimm for their news every morning, and now we’re making it easier to be smarter in a whole new way. Think: the future and everything else.

  • Meet Skimm Picks: a selection of what you need to start watching, downloading, and listening to.

  • Daily Skimm: yes, the best way to wake up is also here. It’s free 99 and it starts your morning with all the info you need to get you through your day.
