WOTS Version 195 with Katrina Kope

On this version of the Word On the Street podcast we welcome back Katrina Kope. Katrina and I chop it up about all sorts of things.  I asked Katrina what she has been doing to relax during the pandemic, she mentioned her practice of songwriting so we dug into the topic. One of the main themes that wove itself in and out of the podcast was getting songs placed so we broke down what Katrina is doing to learn more about song placement and licensing. Katrina also told us about her relationship with her van Simone, and how it's an important part of her lifestyle. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.

* The conversation with Katrina starts at 9:39
