Humans of Gaming 182 | Kate Kadowaki on “TV Eye”, KSM, and Being Another Human


About This Episode

Kate Kadowaki is one of the founders of Love Thy Nerd, and the only one that can make the claim to be a “Disney Princess.” The drummer for the former Disney pop/rock group “KSM” (and no, even she doesn’t know what it stands for), Kate talks to Drew and Chris about the path that led her out of the church and the unassuming path that put her in front of talent scouts for the “Go-Go’s” inspired band. The conversation covers the effects of fame, the difference between the “normal” routine or “real life”, and how a quick decision to play for the church again led her to her husband and a strengthening of her faith.
