From child star to Broadway star to voice star to YouTube star, Christy Carlson Romano has led multiple lives in a short amount of time. Our host, James Palmer, sits down around the campfire with Kim Possible herself and they have an amazing conversation that is sure to… save the world!
Christy’s new chapter finds her in Austin, Texas, where she runs a highly successful YouTube channel. She explains that research and hard work have been the key to the channel’s success. She’s learned how to hack the algorithm and create quality content simultaneously. Not only is Austin “Content City,” it’s also a gateway to the great outdoors. Of course, the life of a child star does not always afford time for camping. So, while Christy is more of a glamper than a camper, her husband is keen to give that more rustic experience to their kids.
We get some behind-the-scenes info from the set of Even Stevens, behind-the-booth info on her voice acting work on Kim Possible, and behind-the-boards info on Broadway. She even answers the age-old question, “Do you get into Disney Parks for free?” Then Christy delves into the nitty-gritty of her childhood and reflects on how her upbringing influenced her mental health. As she gets into the financial ramifications of young money, she expounds on her upbringing and how it impacts her own parenting style.
Christy Carlson Romano has led several lives during her journey through life. Each one is a unique chapter that has shaped her. She believes that her current chapter in Austin is a healthy respite that gives her distance and perspective on the industry that influenced the person she is today. As mentorship becomes an integral part of her existence, she hopes to share her experience with young people. Christy lives on the Sunnier Side, and she chooses to share that light with others, which is all we can ask of anyone.
