Maria Shriver launches new Meaningful Conversations podcast 

Peabody and Emmy Award-winning journalist and producer MARIA SHRIVER has launched a new podcast: “Meaningful Conversations with Maria Shriver.” Building on the success of her instant #1 New York Times-bestselling book I’ve Been Thinking…Reflections, Prayers and Meditations for a Meaningful Life, in the podcast Shriver continues to explore the life topics, issues and ideas that we’re all thinking about, but not discussing nearly enough. Through intimate, thought-provoking conversations with friends and people she respects and admires, Shriver dives into issues like love, pain, forgiveness, gratitude, family, faith, the art of self-reinvention, and more to inspire others to reflect on their own lives and have more meaningful conversations. An NBC Special Anchor, Shriver discussed the first episode of her podcast—a compelling interview with actor Rob Lowe—on the Today Show.  A force of nature of the highest order, Shriver is a passionate and purpose-driven leader whose work has fostered change and advanced some of our nation’s most pressing issues. She is a trailblazer who eloquently moves audiences to become "Architects of Change," leaving them empowered and inspired.
