JCK Jewelry Agenda: Week Of Jan. 9


The Golden Globes are on tonight, but tamper your expectations. The traditionally star-studded ceremony won’t have an audience nor will there be a red carpet—it won’t even be streamed online. Blame the omicron-fueled surge in COVID-19 cases, which is also responsible for scores of event postponements, including the slate of industry gatherings that were scheduled to take place in New York City starting on Friday. Instead of schmoozing this week, here’s an idea: Pull up a chair and get comfortable. The podcasts highlighted below are guaranteed to distract and delight!
