Episode 22. John Crist tells me about his comic roots – making the announcements at church. He also talks about why he decided to pursue his dream job, how being the son of a pastor made him a better comic, and the benefits of having a clean show. And how he believes “if you have a gift and you’re not using it, you’re robbing people.”
“Everybody is put on this planet for a reason, everybody has gifts and callings inside of them that make them come alive.”

I asked my parents, my aunt, my nephew and his friends a bunch of questions. They were separated into a “grown-ups” group and a kids group when I recorded them, because I wanted to see how the different age groups were alike or similar in their answers. Then I put their answers back to back on the podcast.
