When Nick May and I taped our Chaise Lounge Podcast session, he planned to air it before fall High Point Market, as a bit of what we discussed was market-focused. After we taped it, however, the multi-talented podcaster had to beeline for Italy to meet up with Toma Clark Haines (The Antiques Diva) and a curious cast of design characters for a big antiques fair. The demands of the job! Alas, on December 1st our podcast finally aired. Yay!
I listened to it on the drive back from Orlando. Nick gave me a lovely intro. I said things like:
“I want DT to feel like a hug, like a stern parent.” Translation: I want the content to feel emotionaThe funny thing is, because we, in this industry, are all threaded together, I have been on Nick’s show before in spirit. I’ve “been on” with Amy Flurry, Laura Thurman, and Christine Phillips. I’ll be listening to the podcast as I’m cooking dinner, hear my name, and instantly get a giant smile. If my kids are around, I replay the part that I’m “on.” In some way, hoping that they are proud of me and won’t stay too mad at me for being too busy or far away. Might these heartfelt mentions be my absolution?
Here is the link to the podcast, Episode 265, which I am quite thrilled to share with Ellen O’Neill from Benjamin Moore.
Nick May also aired our High Point Market panel, RECIPE FOR SUCCESS, on Episode 262. There I sit with Nick, Barclay Butera, Amy Flurry, and Christine Phillips.
