On Friday evening, Patrick Lagreid will be a guest on the Boutique Cigar Association’s Protecting the Legacy podcast, which is also broadcast live on Facebook.

I—yes, me—will be interviewed by Dr. Gaby Kafie of Kafie 1901 Cigars and the Boutique Cigar Association, Kerr Viajante of Stogie Road Cigars, and Armen Caprielian of DAV Cigars.

You’ll be able to find the show on the Boutique Cigar Association’s Facebook page.

Patrick Lagreid

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
