received an email called Significant Digits.

It’s published daily by FiveThirtyEight, a company in the business of sharing, explaining, and researching data.

Each day, Significant Digits shares a handful of interesting tidbits.

Things like the number of trains that run daily along the Northeast Corridor (2,200), a 457-mile stretch of track connecting Boston to Washington via New York and Philly. And why it matters.

They’ve got a clear and consistent angle to what they publish – “a daily digest of the numbers tucked inside the news.”

That angle is a lot of what makes SD stand out and stay interesting.

What’s your angle?
