001: Teenage Politics & The Origin Story Of Christie Gee
By Christie Gee
It's funny....how one moment in your life can make such a huge impact right? This episode is about that very thing. Growing up in one of the smallest towns in the country (before the boom of internet & social media) to now one of the biggest cities in the world has been quite a journey. It has been a mixture of self discovery, working my way through the ideology of the pentecostal church and thinking outside of it's box, discovering my love of music and moving to Los Angeles where I would go on to work in high end retail (which was always full of fun surprises) to interviewing some of my most favorite musicians and other artists. In the midst of all of it, I fell in and out of love,I questioned alot and found answers in unexpected places, I faced some of the hardest battles and I am here today to tell y'all all about it.I can trace a big moment back to the day I discovered a band from Bremerton, Washington called MXPX via their video for Teenage Politics in the mid 90's.After that life was a pretty great adventure!
