Finding humor in the midst isn’t just the name of Kate’s workshop series, it’s her life’s philosophy. Her best advice? Always carry a notebook and pen because you don’t write comedy, you just write it down. Kate believes humor is medicine and each of us has a unique role to play in offering that medicine to others. Is there anything better than making others laugh and learning not to take ourselves too seriously?
Her most brilliant career advice? Find your unique voice – the journey is longer, but you’ll have much more staying power once you hit your stride.

If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.
We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
This is what the news should sound like. The biggest stories of our time, told by the best journalists in the world. Hosted by Michael Barbaro. Twenty minutes a day, five days a week, ready by 6 a.m.
