Preet Bharara Joins Some Spider Studios

And gets a podcast

There was a time when the Bharara brothers had very different careers. One, Preet Bharara, was a U.S. attorney. The other, Vinit Bharara, was the co-founder of Quidsi, known for sites like Diapers.com and Wag.com.

And then Vinit Bharara started media startup Some Spider, which includes sites Scary Mommy and Cafe.com. And then Preet Bharara was fired in dramatic fashion by President Trump after refusing to resign.

And now the brothers will be working together, with Preet Bharara joining Some Spider as executive vice president.

He’ll have his own legal and justice-focused podcast, Stay Tuned With Preet, debuting in a few months. He will also do some writing for Cafe, and the pair will work to create a new conference based around Cafe’s brand of news and humor.

And while this may be the ultimate in hiring who you know, it’s not the sole recent addition. The company has been on an expansion kick that included the hire of BuzzFeed’s Nicholas Fabiano as creative director last month to head up Some Spider’s branded content studio.
