Entrepreneur and brand strategist Olivia Christian comes from a family that loves sports, which fueled the creation of "The Game Last Night," a sportscast that seeks to add a comedic twist to sports and pop culture stories.

Christian, a Bay Area native, recently explained to NBC Sports Bay Area why she started "The Game Last Night."

"'The Game Last Night' really came from place where I have opinions, I have questions I want to ask athletes," Christian said. "I just decided to turn the camera on myself and create 'The Game Last Night.' "

Christian has interviewed prominent Bay Area athletes like Marcus Semien, Dave Stewart and Lincoln Kennedy, as well as local media personalities like Marc J. Spears and Danielle Slaton, who calls San Jose Earthquakes games for NBC Sports California.

"It's always been important that, I think, athletes talk honestly about race," Christian said. "And it has been through the history of sports in this country."
