WTF is the Love Blast | Freak Flag & why should I subscribe?

The LOVE BLAST & Freak Flag are multi-disciplinary human|artist|renegade Kathleen Smith’s newsletter, and her podcast, all in one!

Freak Flag is the podcast where Kath chats with leaders, healers, entrepreneurs, artists, etc.—i.e. “super cool people doing super cool stuff”—about life, creativity, spirituality, music, magic, medicine, and how f*ing important it is for all of us to fly our freak flags boldly, especially in these times.

Episodes are released in their own time ( monthly-ish, more, less, it all depends) here on Substack & wherever you get your podcasts.

Hi—it’s me, Kathleen! I believe that the world we all want to live in is created when each and every one of us embraces the unique, special, magical medicine only WE can share. I believe we ALL have potent medicine for the times we find ourselves in, and I believe it resides firmly in our Freak Flags. I have fires of passion for supporting people’s soul expression and helping to midwife an entire planet of gorgeous, mutli-colored, multi-dimensional Freak Flags BILLOWING in the beautiful wind!!!! *THAT* is the world I want to live in. YESSSS!

P.S. Part of *my* Freak Flag is that I am quite generally PUNK & UNCATEGORIZEABLE. I write and sing songs, create & teach healing modalities, masquerade as a music supervisor, produce audiobooks, produce events, write books, teach courses, E T C. This used to stress me out because I thought I had to be ONE THING and one thing only. But, voila—now that I’m forty, I give exactly zero fucks about how I “should” be and instead put my energy into what I want to create. Which is a million things.”

You can listen to the pilot episode below to get a vibe:
