We had the good fortune of connecting with Christine Blackburn and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Christine, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
This summer I celebrated the 10 year anniversary of my podcast Story Worthy. I have over 640 episodes in my back catalog and over 6 million downloads. Each week comedians and comedy writers in the entertainment industry share true, personal stories on Story Worthy. I put out a brand new episode every Tuesday. My other shows all stem from the podcast including The Story Worthy Hour of Power, and Story Smash the Storytelling Game Show LIVE ON ZOOM every Sunday night with Blaine Capatch and Danny Zuker as the “expert judges!” Join me and I guarantee you’ll laugh! Tickets and more information here. See you virtually EVERY Sunday night!
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
During covid, there’s not much happening but if everything weren’t shut down, here’s the itinerary for 2 days in LA!
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My family has supported me unconditionally. Along with my mom, I’m fortunate to have 4 sisters and a brother. They have been consistently supportive of me and encourage me all the time. They have lent me money when I needed it most, listen and watch my shows, and they spread the word about me. I haven’t been back to my hometown of Pittsburgh in over one and a half years and I miss seeing them. But luckily we’re still in close touch. My sisters text me hilarious photos and jokes and I know I can pick up the phone anytime and my brother will crack me up. Even though they’re distant, they’re always close in my heart. I don’t know if I could have accomplished anything if I didn’t have such a helpful and supportive family. Please VOTE!
