Kim Napier is the producer and co-host of the World Nomads podcast. Kim grew up in the small state of Tasmania and while fellow co-host Phil likes to tease her about the island state, Kim is a proud unofficial ambassador and loves any opportunity to spread the word on this go-to destination. Read her article on why you'll love Tassie.

Andrew Napier is Kim's husband. After becoming a world expert on the effect of stress on semen reduction in the marmoset monkey, he saddled up his horse and ran away to the Snowy Mountains, spending six months riding across the high plains.
