The Hingham 'Cast
THE HINGHAM 'CAST IS A HYPER LOCAL, WEEKLY PODCAST THAT AIMS TO BRING US CLOSER TOGETHER WITH MEANINGFUL CONVERSATIONS. THROUGH THE LENS OF ONE SMALL TOWN, WE LOOK AT THE PANDEMIC, POLITICS AND ISSUES THAT AFFECT US ALL.
No matter where you live, 2020 was hard. We lost loved ones, friends, jobs—there’s been a racial reckoning—politics has been more divisive than ever. But the pandemic has also pushed us to look inward. What are our Covid numbers? What’s happening in our schools? How do we support our restaurants and small businesses? What do we do for people who are hurting?
This could be a really tough winter, so I hope The Hingham 'Cast helps us get to know each other better—to hear different points of view—to empathize, laugh, challenge and inspire. What are we reading? What are we bingeing? How much are we drinking? How are our kids? What are we doing to be a community for all and where are we falling short?
I hope you'll join me in making the Hingham 'Cast a voice—and microphone—for everyone.
Let's laugh, cry, learn and grow—
I am an award-winning broadcast journalist excited to be entering the world of podcasts. I spent nearly 20 years at NECN and NBC Boston holding the powerful accountable and amplifying the voices of the abused, neglected and marginalized. My team’s work has helped change laws, better protect children and has been recognized with multiple Edward R. Murrow, Emmy, Associated Press and Gabriel Awards. Most recently, I won an Edward R. Murrow award for our work on toxic burn pits at military bases and the potential harm suffered by local veterans.
My husband Patrick and I moved to Hingham in 2005. We are busy raising our two wonderful daughters, Izzie (12) and Lucy (9), and apologizing for our wacky dog Sugar. I miss leisurely breakfasts at crowded diners, travel, the movies, hugging, cocktail parties (most of them) and double dipping.
