Maria Shriver never felt the pressure to go into politics like the rest of her family. Instead, her parents asked her: what moves you? She took that question and ran with it. Fascinated by storytelling, Maria led a decades-long career in journalism. But then she became first lady of California. And NBC asked her to leave. Looking back, Maria says: it was a blessing in disguise.

In this episode, Maria shares:

  • Why she started at smaller stations before hitting the big networks
  • How getting fired opened space for new opportunities for her
  • Why her Alzheimer’s work specifically centers the impacts on women
  • A quick skimm of her brain-healthy food company, Mosh
