Another week, another fabulous guest on The Tic. This week, we're talking to @JoeWadlington, the Global Creative Lead at Twitter . See what we did there ? We've been fans of Joe for a while. We even had him on The Casted Podcast back in February. And it's easy to see why we're such big fans - he has such a zest for life and his creativity and storytelling superpower shines through whenever you speak with him. Listen to his full episode to hear about life as a mommy blogger (no jokes here), editor, storyteller, etiquette columnist, and Drag queen! Seriously... is there anything Joe can't do?
Title: Global Creative Lead at Twitter
Favorite Podcast: Our Friend David (you'll notice a different This American Life episode in the playlist - Our Friend David wasn't available on Spotify.)
Favorite song from when you graduated high school: Hey There Delilah, The Plain White T's
Favorite song from when you started your career: Someone Like You, Adele
Favorite song currently: Fetch the Bolt Cutters, Fiona Apple
Where did you grow up? In the Appalachian Mountains near, but not near enough, to Dollywood. (Check out more of Joe's story here).
Any fun stories about your marketing career you'd care to share? I was on my way to a networking event with my newly (self) minted business cards and I realized that I'd misspelled my name on every. single. one. So I grabbed a pen and when I handed them out I would add the missing letters and say "I'm an editor." It's more important to be memorable than together, I think.
Any other accomplishments you're proud of? I've been published in The New Yorker, The Rumpus, and Food & Wine Magazine. I was also named one of the "13 Bay Area Writers to Watch and Read" of 2016. I also just finished the first draft of my first YA novel. (Okay... suddenly I'm feeling like I need to do a little more with my life.)
Where to find me?
