So gentle

Gentle is the word I think best fits Kate. She is thoughtful and kind to everyone, including herself. Listening to her podcast feels like you are getting a warm hug from a friend who always know what to say.

Discovery of Meaning and learn to heal.

My life changed relatively suddenly. No one died. But the family unit that I had known all my life changed. I felt lost. Not unsteady and I didn’t know who could understand this and help me feel it. Then I found Kate and her podcast. I feel less alone when listening to this podcast and her words and interviewees I find meaning. Healing. And I’d like to think I’m a better human. Thank you.

Important and Impactful

I found Kate and this podcast just after I lost my dad suddenly to a very quickly developing cancer (diagnosed on Friday, died on Monday). I was in desperate need of a calming voice in my ears. Kate’s interviews with the wisest people and the tender, truthful way she talks about hard things is an anchor that keeps me steady through the storms of grief. Thank you!
