In each episode of the “Who’s Here in the Hamptons” podcast, Dan’s Papers founder Dan Rattiner introduces you to a new guest, some well known, others with interesting careers and stories, authors, musicians, restaurateurs, some characters and some behind-the-scenes people who live, work and play in the summer paradise of the rich and famous.
Episode 53: This week on the “Dan’s Talks” podcast, Dan speaks with Dava Sobel — bestselling author, Guggenheim Fellowship Award winner and Pulitzer nominee. They discuss her books, career and life in the Hamptons where she has lived for more than 30 years. Her seminal work, Longitude, is about the man who, in the 18th century, invented the first device to enable mariners to determine their longitude at sea. Currently, she is the poetry editor for Scientific American magazine.
