Kim Weitkamp

Kim has mastered the craft of blending humor and heartache, seriousness and silliness…all linked together by music. One reviewer stated, “Hard to explain but oh, so easy to enjoy.” She currently has 8 award winning audio collections, the latest one, A Wandering Mind, a much anticipated collection of personal stories and songs that has received rave reviews and airplay on NPR affiliates and Sirius XM. Kim has made numerous television appearances, hosted a successful morning show and has authored numerous articles for periodicals and magazines.

 

 

This episode is also one of the spooky persuasion. If you are the designated driver for sensitive souls you might want to come back to this one later or re listen to another episode. I would suggest Episode Thirteen for a twisted Hansel and Gretel by Ingrid Nixon or get a total throw back to before the show had opening music and listen to Episode Five and hear about brave Molly Whuppie by Megan Hicks. So be bold, be bold, but not too bold.
