MORE I The Podcast I had to do

I'm off on an adventure and I have no idea where I will land.



More. The Podcast I had to do. I just want to talk to people. All people from all walks of life.

I have enrolled to study a Bachelor of Psychological Sciences with Swinburne University and this is the beginning of this journey.


“It's a podcast of lessons, questions and growth. It's more conversations that matter with real people”



A little about me.


My name is Kate Meade and I am a Breakfast Radio Host, Mother of 3, wife and student. I classify myself as a life long learner. I'm just always fascinated by a great story. I learn best through the stories of others.

I am the Founder of the Victorian Dance Festival and a strong advocate for the arts in Australia.

This won't be a pretty podcast or website. In fact you can expect spelling mistakes and grammar mistakes, though I will try my best.

Writing isn't my strong point, interviewing and listening is.....So heads up, if you don't want to burn your eyes.... just listen to the podcast.

Most importantly. I am accessible. Email me anytime katemeade82@gmail.com

(See even my email isn't 'professional' yet!)


If you are still curious about who I am or why it matters, and I suppose it does. Here's a little background.
