Welcome to Keep Up, Kids! What are we keeping up with? Glad you asked.

This Substack is for anyone who loves culture (TV, movies, books, podcasts, etc) but sometimes finds the sheer volume of Great Stuff difficult to keep up with. I watch/read/listen to so much stuff for work (and because I like it) that I’m constantly recommending things to everyone I talk to. I have eclectic tastes, so no doubt you’ll find a few things that sound right up your alley – and maybe even try out others that you wouldn’t otherwise have given a chance.

Issues drop in your inbox every other Friday, just in time to set up your reading, watching, or listening for the weekend.

Who am I?

👋 I’m Kate, an American writer and editor currently based in London. I’m mostly a screenwriter these days (both film and TV), but I also write or have written podcasts, food/travel/culture journalism, brand and ad copy, fiction, essays, and pretty much everything in between.

In other words, stories are kinda my thing.

If you’d like to learn more about me, my professional website is the place to go.

Right now, Keep Up, Kids only has a free subscription, but I am planning a paid tier that’ll have lots more fun goodies. If that sounds fun – or if you just like my writing and want to support it/me – I’ll let you in on a hot tip that the current pledge rate is the lowest it’ll ever be, so you might want to get on that.

Stay up-to-date

I watch a lot of TV for work. I read a lot of books for work. I listen to a lot of podcasts for work. You get the idea. Since I'm constantly recommending stuff to everyone I know, I'm recommending it to you, too.
