Practical Magic Podcast with Kate Taylor

The Practical Magic podcast is a weekly dive into helping us live an embodied life full of creative expression with Kate Taylor, creativity and empowerment coach. Practical Magic is Kate's blended melting pot of goodness to align mind, body and soul.

Each week on the podcast will be a voyage of discovery through the mind-body connection to uncover the buried treasure we have within each of us. Kate will be joined on the Practical Magic sofa every fortnight by special guests from the worlds of creativity, wellness, modern spirituality, and those who live for unlocking the power of the body’s wisdom.

“I grew up in a place where everybody was a storyteller, but nobody wrote. It was that kind of Celtic, storytelling tradition: everybody would have a story at the pub or at parties, even at the clubs and raves.”

Irvine Welsh

On last week’s Practical Magic podcast, I interviewed author and storyteller Laura Jane Williams, we discussed why storytelling is something we do as human beings with human feelings, so on this week’s show I am diving into the subject in more detail, and share a story which has shaped and defined me as a person doing what I do in the world.

On the show I explore:

  • The stories that connect the dots and narratives of our creative lives and businesses.
  • How storytelling is a way of communicating ideas and beliefs.
  • Finding our ‘why’ and why this is so much more important than what we do, or how we do it.
  • The ability that stories have to connect to others through ‘brain to brain coupling’
  • Why stories are just ‘data with a soul’.
  • Why we need your voice, and ways to share your story.


Adult language warning, there are few colourful words peppered throughout the interview.
