Why Am I Catherine King

Hey everybody, I’m Greg Sowell and this is Why Am I, a podcast where I talk to interesting people and try to trace a path to where they find themselves today.  My guest this go around is Catherine King.  I found her via her work as a sign language interpreter for some of the biggest european comedians out there, and in particular a bit where she was signing crazy phrases with various accents…it’s worth a watch; check below for a link.  I learned that interpreters guess what comes next, and don’t necessarily translate word for word, but work to convey the feeling or intention of the message.  I also found an incredibly kind, warm, and empathetic person who is working to make room for themselves(even when the voices in their head tells them not to).  I hope you enjoy this chat with Catherine. Help us grow by sharing with someone!
