Listen Up: Listener, I Googled It and the HBIC Behind Cherry Bombe
First up this week, we’re baring our scrolls and telling you the most recent things in our search histories (#noshame) in the first installment of something we’re calling “Listener, I Googled It.” Then! Cherry Bombe co-founder Kerry Diamond weighs in on which is harder: opening a restaurant or launching a media company (‘cause she does both, NBD).
P.S. In #ReadingThings news, there’s just one week left to read Foreign Affairs before we discuss it on Monday, 8/15!
