Hard to believe, but Pam and I have been doing this website for more than half a decade -- that's five years in layman's terms.
It's been an adventure, and like most adventures, full of twists, turns and the unexpected. What started as an effort to spotlight the people and places of North Palm Beach has grown into a robust collection of travel articles, cruise news, photography, events throughout South Florida and another important segment we never envisioned at the start -- podcasts.
As you already know, podcasting (definition: "a digital audio file available for downloading or listening") has taken off like a rocket over the last few years, and I'm proud to say Pam was at the forefront. She actually launched her first podcast in 2016, and since then, has done hundreds. And just like the website, she has evolved them over time. From "WPAMM in Palm Beach," a takeoff on the radio nature of podcasting to "Pamme's Chitchat," which covered a wide range of topics.
Her latest incarnation is "Gigi in the 561," which launched at the beginning of the year. The name "Gigi" derives from what our eight-year-old granddaughter, Cate, calls her. And of course "561" is the Palm Beach area code.
If you haven't listened to it, you should. Along with her regular topics, she has introduced a series of interviews with fascinating people. It's tailor-made for what does Pam does best -- interact with people. As one of her recent subjects told me, "Pam is fabulous. I felt like we were sitting in my living room, having coffee together." I couldn't agree more.
You can find her page HERE, and an index of her interviews HERE. And know of someone who would make a good interview? EMAIL her a recommendation. By the way, you can also find her on ITUNES, PANDORA, Google, Spotify and many other platforms.
Best of all, Gigi is just getting started. "561," watch out!
Yes, I know it's spelled like "Jerry." No, I don't know why it's pronounced "Gary."
