Meet the Host
Kim King, RSCJ, currently lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and serves as director of Barat Spirituality Centre. She grew up listening to stories of both her father’s and grandfather’s time in radio. Her mother taught her about using inflection and the joy of expression through reading aloud together. She discovered the power of her own public voice as a senior in high school when she asked to invent a personal experience to fulfill a speech class requirement. By the end of her 15-minute speech, the whole class was convinced she’d actually met the Queen of England. Since then, she has delighted in using her creativity and voice in tandem through many different opportunities, including writing stories, essays and poetry; storytelling; teaching; and blogging.
