Today’s Snapchat “Fact of the Day” (add us at ‘nprnews’) comes from NPR Senior Business Editor Marilyn Geewax. Marilyn succeeded in sharing a fact about the upcoming Scottish independence referendum in less than 10 seconds, which is quite a feat.
If her fact piqued your interest, take a look at her most recent blog post: Like It Or Not, Scotland’s Drama May Hit Your Wallet. And if you’re still curious about the details of the referendum (why is the vote happening now? If the vote is “yes,” will the Queen of England remain Scotland’s monarch? etc), we’ve got you covered. Geewax and Ari Shapiro (NPR correspondent based in London) teamed up on Tuesday afternoon to answer readers’ questions on Facebook.
