Meet Kim Napier

Senior Podcast Producer and Co-Host

I'm from Tasmania and have convict ancestry; my ancestor was a woman involved in possibly the world’s first flash mob, lifting her skirt and slapping her bare bum to a preacher alongside 300 other incarcerated women.

I first ventured to Sydney when I was 21 but missed Tasmania’s fresh air, reportedly the cleanest in the world, and returned to my island state. I have since lived in Adelaide and am now back in Sydney, living in beachside Manly and converting a delivery van into a weekend getaway on wheels. I don’t speak any languages other than English (not quite the Queen's). However, I did study a language at school and hence can pronounce the words 'window' and 'ruler' in French. I also studied drama at university before accepting a cadetship in broadcast news working in both television and radio.

It was in radio that I morphed into an on-air role and had a top-rating breakfast show, rising well before the sun and crashing on the couch well before it set.

With more sociable hours, I now lend my voice to The World Nomads Podcast and work as Senior Producer scouring the globe for travel bloggers, experts and authors to share their stories. As a keen traveler, the best thing about working at World Nomads is learning about the destinations I’d never considered visiting or even knew about.
