On this episode of Medium Well, I chat with Kerry Diamond, co-founder of Cherry Bombe and owner of Smith Canteen. Kerry’s work with Cherry Bombe supports and celebrates womxn in the food industry, where she has built quite a following, and she also runs a coffee shop in Brooklyn dedicated to being the greenest shop in town. Our conversation covers both these topics, as well as her path in media, how being a writer has changed, and more.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Kerry’s background in media

  • How Kerry has changed careers and industries multiple times, and why

  • How Kerry started Cherry Bombe, and how the industry has changed since then

  • The role of Instagram in the changing media landscape

  • Advice for writers and creatives

  • Her “green canteen” initiative and why sustainability is important

  • The challenges of running a sustainable business

  • How business owners and individuals can take steps towards sustainable living

All the deets:
