a place to stay informed.
Honestly, we’re just a couple of recent college grads eating dark chocolate PB cups and suffering from impostor syndrome as we dream up the world’s most beautiful and fun political media company!
We started with one thing in mind – how can we help our friends stay informed? Both of us spent the better part of our days studying, reading, and writing about politics, but our friends’ eyes would glaze at the mention of the latest headlines.
As a couple of enterprising liberal arts students, we began to ask our friends why they hated politics. The most common answer, unsurprisingly, was because news was inaccessible, polarized, and dry. We thought to ourselves, great, we can fix that.
Thus, Mira. In 2017, we started exclusively on Instagram, and have briefed our followers M-F mornings, via our Instagram story. Over the past 1.5 years, we have learned that there are A LOT of people who want to be informed, but hate the process. It’s hard enough to remember to switch your laundry, let alone the nuances between the House and Senate. We get it.
Mira is the place where you can have fun screaming, joking, crying, and rampaging about what the heck is going on in the world. Our mission hasn’t changed since day one: to inform our friends (uh, that’s you, so hi!).
