Show Notes

Kate is an Emmy®-nominated producer and director, a writer and filmmaker, a television host with Rocky Mountain PBS, and a rock musician -- currently in the band, Spirettes -- who has performed, recorded and toured near and far with her music. Kate shares her story of growing up in poverty on a 40-acre vegetable farm in remote Minnesota. She tells of leaving home for college at 16 and the importance of the winding road she took to finish college several years and a few schools later at 23. Kate has adventurously flowed back and forth across the country over the years. She has worked in various forms of journalism and media … has given birth to rock bands, and to a son who, now 9 years old, has taken to the backstage life with his mom. Along the way, we’ll hear Kate’s insights about trusting one’s inner voice, about self-validation and about exploring curiosity. We’ll talk about the value of silence, and Kate’s definition and experience of God. More at humanitou.com.

95: Elliana Grace, circus performer, on being a human cannonball, life aboard the Ringling Bros. train, growing up in a circus family, and having a famous (non-circus) grandfather

Elliana Grace grew up in a circus family and in the circus life. From infancy. Like, from being a baby being breastfed while sitting atop an elephant kind of infancy. She and her two younger brothers, who also are globe-traveling professional circus performers, spent more time at their fantastically strange and sometimes dangerous home-away-from-home in St. Louis, the City Museum, than they did their home-home. Elliana shares some laugh-out-loud stories of mischief and sibling rivalry. And by the way, Elliana spent a year riding the rails with the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus as, hands down, the most singularly explosive performer (wink, wink) in the circus, let’s say. And a lot more, including memories of her grandfather, the renowned columnist and jazz critic, Nat Hentoff.
