About This Show
5to9 is a podcast for the side hustle generation. For those who make their bread in a 9 to 5 job, and fulfill their dream in a 5 to 9 hustle. For the moonlighting culture. For those who want more.
We sit down with inspiring people for a conversation on how they fulfill their passions with creative projects, and why they do what they do.
Created with love and care by John Matson and Tina Yip.

12: Ruthless Prioritization // Caitlin Thompson (Founder of Racquet Magazine)
In this episode of 5to9, we talked to Caitlin Thompson, the Director of Content at acast and creator of side project, Racquet. Racquet is an independent magazine that celebrates the art, ideas, style and culture that surround tennis.
This side project has generated a cult following since launch in 2016 and has been commended as “extremely dope”, “a rare tennis magazine with taste”, and “deliciously smart” in tons of publications such as the New York Times, the Harvard Neiman Lab, and The Monocle.
We talked about her fascinating upbringing in Montreal, what it was like realizing that although being quite successful in tennis during her teen years, she didn’t want to pursue the sport professionally, her obsession with multi-faceted people, why she decided to do a side project after having a child, and how she learned to ruthlessly prioritize.
