Kim Richards, under the username Nanosounds, is an editor and YouTuber for the Yogscast. She set up a YouTube channel under the name YogscastKim, with 25,000 subscribers before any videos were released. Her first videos went up on May 23, 2013 and she soon gained a huge fan base.


Kim joined the Yogscast as a freelance video editor in October 2012 and became full time in March 2013, but coming from a presenting background, she was quickly allowed back in front of the camera again. Armed with her trusty Totoro, a bowl of noodles and an ever changing  accent, Kim's continuing mission is "to seek out new videogames and boldly go where no Pokemon has gone before."

From late July 2013, Kim has teamed up with Sam Strippin to bring YogNews to the masses via YouTube. Some have been rather critical of the unprofessional nature of the presentation, but YogNews is not a serious show. The two of them bring the latest gaming news, Yogcast news and present them in a fun and interesting way in line with the ways of Simon and Lewis' gameplay.
