Ep. 12: St. Patrick’s Day and Graybar Origin Story

Host Jason Dressel welcomes back professor of history and religion, Lisa Bitel, to talk about who St. Patrick was, some common misconceptions about him and how we celebrate today the story of the patron saint of Ireland. We also welcome Graybar’s Director of Strategic Communications, Carrie Johnson, to talk about the company’s origins, and little known stories from its founder and history.

If you enjoy the podcast, don’t miss the opportunity to hear Carrie speak at The Anniversary Marketing Summit, where she’ll share more about the company’s successful 150th anniversary.

Company history comes alive with History Factory Plugged In. We look at the rich heritage of major organizations in this thought-provoking podcast. If you have any questions, comments, or ideas to share, please email us at [email protected].
