  1. I enjoyed hearing Christine’s story, I always enjoyed seeing her on You can’t Do That On Television”. It was one of my favorite shows when I was young.

    it was nice to hear her talk about how she learned to improvisationaly speak, before appearing on the show, and how it helped her later in life, and as part of her current work, helping people grow their businesses.

    I your the podcast will also interview other famous people. Eliza Jane Schneider, seems like she would be a good guest on this podcast, Accent coach, voice over artist, and appeared on shows like South Park, Beakman’s World, and even hosted her own onewomen show called “Freedom of Speech”. Julie Christensen, of the bands Stone Cupid, and the Divine Horsemen, would also make an interesting guest, she teaches classes on speaking also. Maybe even Paul Zaloom, and how he tries to incorporate audience participation, and humor into his performances. Just some thoughts, Thanks for letting us come along with your visit from Christine.
