The Cape & Islands Podcast

Welcome to the Cape & Islands Podcast where we cover local people, their stories, important community topics, interesting visitors, some history and most importantly work to build a stronger community within Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket collectively. This podcast will have multiple series and hosts over time. In addition to standard format interviews, one series I am excited about is the "Cozy Corner" where we'll have bands come into the Trove Art Gallery in Orleans and play live original music while also telling us a little about their band and history. Cozy Corner videos will be posted on the Cape & Islands Podcast YouTube page and the audio will be streamed through the standard podcast streaming platforms. I am your host Clarke (future hosts will be added to the stable) my back story is I am a washashore resident of Cape Cod and moved here in 2018. I own Trove Art Gallery & Boutique in Orleans which I opened in 2019 as well as Checkpoint East Recording Studio and Safe Harbor Records which launched in 2020, also located in Orleans. While I may not be from here originally, I hope to do a good job promoting all of the fantastic local people that I have the privilege of meeting often through my various businesses. I am also a board member of WOMR Radio out of Provincetown. Thank you for listening and please do share feedback and recommendations for topics or guests at any time.
