KJZZ partners with the Arizona Republic to bring you the Arizona Storytellers series. We record the live events and share them with you on the radio. In Phoenix, the storytellers sometimes share stories about our community or the life events that have shaped them in general. Megan Finnerty is the creator of the series. 

When Karina Bland was 16 years old, she had a plan to graduate from college, move to New York, get married and have twins before she was 30. But her life didn’t go as planned. So after she turned 31, Bland decided to have a baby on her own. She researched ovulation, fertilization and sperm banks.

Karina Bland is columnist at the Arizona Republic.

The next storytelling event is March 31, 2016, at the South Mountain Community College's Performing Arts Center.
