The Shriver Report: What It Is and Its' Impact on the Economic Landscape. Podcast
The Shriver Report is the cornerstone of the 2009 Women’s Conference, also known as The California Governor and First Lady’s Conference on Women. This report was covered in a podcast format with Maria Shriver, John Podesta and 30 select bloggers to participate (me included) in Oct. However part of what’s interesting is some of the commentary now going on after the Women’s Conference, the changes in the economic landscape since the report was launched and most particularly here in the California landscape where Shriver’s husband, Arnold Schwarzenegger is governor and has taken a hatchet to the budget while trying to fix the economic situation that has been in tatter since he took office.
To put the podcast with Thom DeLorenzo in perspective, here’s a bit of the scoop and you can buy a copy of the Shriver Report as an ebook. You can find it online at The Shriver Report published by Simon & Schuster for you to download an ebook through major e-tailers.

The Woman’s Nation, a term coined by Eunice Kennedy Shriver, is a complex and ever changing entity. Examining it from a business, economic, social, religious, political, and domestic stand point, Maria Shriver and the Center for American Progress have created this fascinating and nuanced report to help us understand what it means to be a woman in today’s world.
Shriver had worked with a think tank headed by John Podesta in conjunction with TIME Magazine to put together a report on the state of the women in the US and what are the current issues and what changes and improvements have been made in the roles of women at home and in the workplace. There are many chapters to this book with authors and contributors that run the gamut rom Billie Jean King to Suze Orman, Susan Douglas to Courtney Martin, the list of contributors to The Shriver Report includes experts in economics, businss, sports, psychology, entertainment, and morewith many notable authors with significant reputations in the fields they are talking about. The introduction is by Maria Shriver and the epilogue is by Oprah Winfrey and edited by Heather Boushey and Ann O’Leary.
Counter to the podcast from the Shriver Report post is this podcast done with Thom DeLorenzo, contributor to TheBody.com and also the HuffPost, LA edition as well as the national website.
Be forewarned this podcast is a lengthy discussion of what’s in the sections of the Shriver Report as well as what’s in reality happening in the country and in the state of California. It’s a long podcast. . However we dig into pieces of it and take it apart like so much confetti.
This isn’t going to be the only discussion on the Shriver Report so look for more content coming discussing the role of women in the economy and in the social landscape of the US and globally.
Thanks to Thom DeLorenzo for his discussion. He’s a great resource.
