Topics worth listening to.

Kate is intelligent and straight-forward. I love her sense of humor and the content is so intriguing. You can tell how much work she puts into this. This podcast drew me in many months ago. I am so hooked! Kate is so knowledgeable and this is a podcast I could binge for days! Keep up the wonderful work. 🖤👏🏻

Blissful Listening

Kate has been so giving with her time and knowledge, being literally the first person to answer one of my silly questions. I am forever grateful. She gives interesting, knowledgeable, and entertaining dialouge with her guest that are seemingly timeless.

Meh...

I’m starting with ep 264, and the subject of this episode has got a verbal style and attitude that’s making it tough to stay with. Like ending each statement with a high-pitched UP inflection punctuated with a question mark. Ugh. Add to it, she’s bit chin about someone she doesn’t like... incessantly.

So, I’ll start with 2 Stars. We’ll see how it goes.
