Earlier today, commission-free stock and crypto trading app Robinhood announced the acquisition of MarketSnacks, a popular financial news podcast and newsletter by Jack Kramer and Nick Martell.

Shortly after the announcement, the first issue of “Robinhood Snacks” hit user inboxes, showing off the newly rebranded newsletter, which includes daily and weekly issues. Thanks to the acquisition, both the newsletter and podcast — now named “Snacks Daily” — will be easily accessible for Robinhood’s more than 6 million users.

Here are the changes subscribers can expect, according to the team:

New HQ, fresh name: We’ve moved from NYC to Robinhood’s Silicon Valley homebase. And MarketSnacks is now “Snacks.” Sharper. Shorter. And just rolls off the tongue.

Bigger: Expect to see Snacks’ bite-sized news everywhere you scroll, swipe, and smile-emoji-with-heart-eyes your news.

Exclusive insights: Curious what stocks are most popular among Millennials in Texas? We can tell you based on aggregated trends from Robinhood’s investing platform.

Kramer and Martell, the 2-man team behind MarketSnacks, claim to have never missed a day of covering the market since starting in 2012 — 1,786 newsletters. The pair have joined Robinhood as managing editors of news and have relocated to the company’s HQ in Menlo Park, California.
