Often we have to arrange every episode of HODINKEE Radio, telling you who the visitor is, how we met them, and why you need to wish to hearken to them discuss for an hour or so. This week although, we are able to skip all that. Gray and I made a decision that for our subsequent editor profile (you may take a look at the primary one, with Joe Thompson, proper right here), it was time we sit down with none apart from HODINKEE editor, social media supervisor, and supervisor of particular tasks, Ms. Cara Barrett.
Now, I is perhaps biased as a result of I’ve the distinct pleasure of sitting proper throughout from Cara at HODINKEE HQ, however you would be hard-pressed to search out somebody on our masthead who’s higher at bringing out the very best in every individual on our group. Gray aptly describes Cara as our “glue man” – you realize, the one who holds the entire thing collectively behind the scenes. Do not mistake that although for that means Cara does not deliver her personal all-star contributions to the desk. From the HODINKEE Journal Quantity 1 cowl story about Paul Newman’s Paul Newman Daytona (and the video we produced in the course of the sale itself) to diving deep into the perplexing story of the Senza Luna, Cara’s written a couple of all-time nice HODINKEE tales too. We speak about all of this, however we additionally get into the place Cara comes from (it would shock you), how she remodeled from a would-be engineering main to an artwork historian, her days sorting by antiques in English nation homes, to her entry into the watch world.
We recorded this on Cara’s birthday too, so there’s loads of gift-giving, wine pouring, and all method of basic revelry. If this episode is half as enjoyable to hearken to because it was to make, you are in for a deal with.
We hope you take pleasure in Episode 45 of HODINKEE Radio. Try the present notes beneath and tell us what you assume within the feedback.
