Helena Harris is a veteran podcaster (and avid equestrian). She co-founded the Horse Radio Network in 1998 with one show and just 12 listeners. Today, HRN logs more than 10 million episode downloads each year, with subscribers in 42 countries. Helena has hosted and produced four shows on HRN, as well as her new, independent podcast, That Newport Show, a lifestyle podcast about love, life, and adventure in Newport, Rhode Island.
That Newport Show launched in March of 2016 and is produced under the umbrella of Helena’s marketing firm, Sparkle and Boom, which provides outsourced expertise in marketing and communications. Prior to her freelance career, Helena served as a product marketing manager in the tech industry for companies like Sybase/SAP, Thomson Financial, and EBSCO Publishing. She left corporate life behind when she became a mothers, and found that working independently was a great fit for her creative spirit. Trading high rises for hay lofts, she now runs Sparkle and Boom from an office in Little Compton that looks an awful lot like a barn.
