Kate is such an amazing person, it’s no wonder her daughter (i.e. yesterday’s featured artist) is the same brand of awesome. Kate is an inspirational, crazy supportive, and immensely educated podcaster that wants to blow your mind with psychological facts and change the way you think about the world. In my opinion, you should let her.
How long have you had your podcast?
February 2018 …just passed 100 days
What inspired you to become a podcast?
I listen to a lot of podcasts, and they asked questions that I know the answers to, or at least I know an answer to. And I thought, rather than wait for them to knock on my door, magically, I might as well start my own.
What kinds of topics do you talk about on your podcast?
Crime and psychology
What inspired the name of your podcast?
Sometimes once we learn something, we wish we didn’t know. Ignorance really was with us.
Which has been your favorite episode to record so far? (Include a link)
Don’t make me choose between my babies.
I guess… favorite to record? The talk with my grandmother about domestic abuse.
What is the most challenging part about podcasting in the genre you’ve chosen?
It’s a crowded genre and I don’t quite fit in any one area, so it is effectively impossible to compare progress or find a niche or generally know where I fit.
I think the correct answer might be that it’s hard to talk about these things, particularly in the way that I do. But that’s the easy part. The hard part is all the podcasting details.
Do you have any funny stories from podcasting?
My 4th episode was a complete whim. My daughter said she wanted to talk about something, and I had no idea what she meant, so we just made shit up as we went along. And now it’s one of my more popular episodes. Okay.
Is there anyone you’d like to promote? (Include a blurb about what they do and why you like them along with the link to their content)
I think Kim, from People Are Wild is doing really important work. I think Paul from the True Crime Enthusiast is handling things with true sensitivity. I think Roseanne Ann from Killifornia Dreaming has proven that you don’t have to sound scary or intense to get your point across. I think making list freaks me out.
Where can we find you on social media?
If you’re looking for a true crime podcast that’s going to change your life, give Ignorance Was Bliss a listen and follow Kate on every social media everywhere.
