This past Tuesday, we released Episode 10 of Restoration Row and wrapped up our first season. It's been wild to work on a podcast I'm so proud of alongside a hardworking, visionary team. Truly a dream come true.
It's got me thinking about the past few months I've spent working on Restoration Row. As editor, I've overseen the stories we've shared and connected with the authors who wrote them. I've watched a community grow in an organic way, all centered around the ideas of hope, empathy and resilience.
Those are some lofty concepts in a world like today's.
Yet we carve out the space. We make time to breathe and listen and reflect. There's something about the podcast format that's always spoken to me, and I think a lot of it has to do with its inherent musicality—the fusion that arises when you assemble something entirely sound-based.
I could go on and on with my many thanks, but I'll end here by sharing my immense gratitude to Chima, Ingeborg, all the authors of season one, and every single listener we have around the globe. Thank you <3
And if you're in the NYC area, please consider attending Restoration Row's season one wrap-up party on Tuesday, July 24th at 6:30 PM. We’ll be celebrating a first season done and toasting to many more to come. There will be readings, awards, and drinks. (Because what party would be complete without them?) More details to come soon.
You can listen to Restoration Row wherever you get your podcasts, including iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher and SoundCloud. Learn more about Episode 10's author William Henry Searle and his story "The Hollow of Shell Bay" <<<here>>>
