THIS IS EPISODE 554 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Christian Yeager grew up in the North Shore of O’ahu, Hawaii, and his world revolved around the ocean and surfing. Surfing before school, after school, and sometimes during school if the waves were perfect. He joined his school’s surf team and competed every weekend in the National Scholastic Surfing Association competitions around the island.
In his wild and crazy life, Yeager has taught kindergarten orphans in Mexico, produced feature films and documentaries in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles, and spent time modeling in San Diego.
In 2014, he got married and moved to Sydney, Australia, to attend Hillsong College. Three years later, he and his wife, Heather, moved to Southeast Asia to intern with A21, an anti-human trafficking organization. His time with A21 took him to Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia.
After returning to the United States and becoming a father, Yeager developed a show called “This Cosmic Planet,” which he’s currently hosting on Yippee TV.
On this episode of the podcast, Yeager shares about his life as a surfer, his close call with a tiger shark, the story of his friend Diego leading him to Christ, and why he’s passionate about creating content for kids on Yippee TV.
