Rob Cairns

An unexpected conversation with a guy who lives in the centre of the universe and knows a few things about podcasting.
A conversation with Rob Cairns.

What’s Rob Up To? Find Out At The WP World.

Here Rob talks about his early life moving – as his Father’s career did – from Montreal to Toronto. That was not such an easy transition as you might imagine.

And we went on to talk more about his family background (a purpose of this podcast), his career in insurance (I had one too but it was very different), finding his partner on Facebook, parenthood, his love or sports (especially the Toronto Blue Jays) his wide scope of reading interests and dedication to it.

And he has a podcast too.

Seriously, BUD? Don’t you think I get enough email newsletters already? 

No, you don’t. You need the one newsletter that comes out once a week and features the one person in the WordPress Community with whom I had an unexpected conversation.
