When Kama realized her kids didn’t need quite so much raising anymore, she looked into raising other things. Hell? Farm Animals? No… How about a radio station?– It’s a little bit of both! She has a BA in communication and in her spare time enjoys domestic policy, eating, and traveling to exotic thrift stores for old records.
