NEW CITY, NY, Dec. 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — New York-based contemporary retailer coop & spree has launched a podcast called coop convos, covering all things business, retail and wellness. coop convos is hosted by coop & spree CEO and founder Brooke S. Richman, who will interview a variety of business leaders, tastemakers and influencers in their aforementioned industries. Since Richman is an avid New York Knicks fan (spree in coop & spree comes from her childhood puppy’s name that paid homage to former Knick, Latrell Sprewell), she even interviewed and secured some former NBA stars.
The podcast is available on more than 10 platforms and the first episode will air on February 1, 2023. To date, Richman has secured over 35 prestigious guests and has already recorded episodes with Stephanie Gottlieb, founder of Stephanie Gottlieb Fine Jewelry, Dale Stabler, wellness entrepreneur and co-founder of Sweats + The City, as well as the app Orro + Theheard, and Allan Houston, 2x NBA All-Star for the New York Knicks, Olympic Gold Medalist and founder of FISLL, a social lifestyle app. and clothing brand.
Notable confirmed guests include Sydney Sadick, author, TV host and founder of Spotlight Magazine, Jen Ross, co-founder of Swoon, Samantha Steen, CEO and founder of Cami NYC, Kendra Randle, designer and founder of Kalore and wife of current Knicks star Julius Randle, Kimberly Ross , founder and CEO of Ora, and John Wallace, a former NBA star, investor and philanthropist who also serves as a Knicks radio personality.
During the outbreak of the pandemic in March 2020, Richman temporarily moved from her apartment in New York to her childhood home in Greenwich, CT, where she learned to code and created her e-communication website coopandspreevip.com. With her Elizabeth Street store in NYC closed due to the pandemic, she had all of her vendors ship their orders to her CT home, where she fulfilled them. When she wasn’t opening new merchandise or packing her clients’ orders, she was using Instagram Live as a way to reach her coop & spree audience since she was no longer able to interact with them in person. She decided to start interviewing different designers and influencers, many of whom she knew and many of whom she had never met, and she absolutely loved it. So does her audience. It turned into a weekly tradition and the rest, as they say, is history. Not only have these weekly IG TV “conversations” created much-needed connection during a time of unprecedented isolation, but they’ve also given Richman and coop & spree a new way to engage with both customers and sellers.
coop convos follows the same format as Richman’s IG lives, where Richman focuses on each guest’s career journey and personal story in a relaxed format that feels less like a conversation and more like two old friends catching up. While the main focus of the podcast is to provide valuable and informative insights and resources to those specifically interested in business, retail and wellness, Richman promises it’s also filled with light-hearted banter and just the right amount of laughs.
