About Kate

Kate Petersen grew up outside of Philadelphia, the oldest, loudest, and most obnoxious of three. As a child, she hoped to be a paleontologist, an actress, an HR manager, a lobbyist, a fashion designer, or a criminal attorney. Finally, in high school, Kate settled on two things she knew she loved - government and history. Coincidentally, those were her major and minor respectively at Georgetown University.

Her dual interests grew to the point where friends prayed she would stop yammering on about these topics and start writing about them instead. Kate, however, gets bored easily and doesn’t like having to write too many words in a row, so here we are. Podcasting.

Kate now works in state government, and is sincerely hoping this podcast does not adversely affect her employment.
