Hi. I’m Adam Williams, creator and host of Humanitou, a podcast that empowers connection through conversations of humanness and creativity.
Today, I’m talking with Kate Perdoni.
Kate is an Emmy®-nominated producer and director, a writer and filmmaker, a television host with Rocky Mountain PBS, and a rock musician — currently in the band, Spirettes — who has performed, recorded and toured near and far with her music.
She shares her story of growing up in poverty on a 40-acre vegetable farm in remote Minnesota. She tells of leaving home for college at 16 and the importance of the winding road she took to finish college several years and a few schools later at 23.
Kate has adventurously flowed back and forth across the country over the years, experiencing new cities and cultures, van breakdowns and new starts. She has worked in various forms of journalism and media … has given birth to rock bands, and to a son who, now nine years old, has taken to the backstage life with his mom.
We’ll get into some of those stories. And along the way, we’ll also hear Kate’s insights about trusting one’s inner voice, about self-validation and about exploring curiosity. We’ll talk about the value of silence, and Kate’s definition and experience of God.
And, of course, we’ll talk about a whole lot more.
Let’s get into it. Here’s my conversation with Kate Perdoni.
