As you may have heard, Justice Stephen Breyer, ’59, will retire at the end of the Supreme Court’s current term, assuming his successor is confirmed. Stanford will take a look at his legacy later this year.

After 27 years, the justice well knows how to get to One First Street, but Steve Youngwood, MBA ’97, can tell you how to get to Sesame Street. He’s the new CEO of Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit behind Big Bird et al. 

In other entertainment news, Ramin Setoodeh, ’04, is moving from executive editor to co-editor-in-chief of Variety this year. 

If you’re not a fan of Elmo or the red carpet, you might be more interested in the CBC Radio show This Place: 150 Years Retold. Eva Grant, ’19, was part of the all-Indigenous team that created the 10-part audio series exploring the “heroes, battles, triumphs and traditions” of overlooked Canadian history.

And Twitter’s new head honcho (or, dare we say, big bird) is Parag Agrawal, MS ’07, PhD ’12, who takes the reins from co-founder Jack Dorsey.
