Brooke Shields launches “What now?” Podcast with iHeart. | Daily News Podcast


Brooke Shields has been an actress, model, author, and entrepreneur during her decades in the media eye. Today, she becomes a podcaster. Shields has signed with iHeartMedia to launch the Now What? podcast. The weekly show is about pivotal moments and the decisions people make as a result – from career changes and personal missteps to going through heartbreak or just moving on.

The series will feature Shields in conversation with experts, authors and celebrity guests about the things that brought them down and what they did to get back up. Its creators say some are funny, some are heartbreaking – but they all have one thing in common: every success and every setback comes with a choice and a “now what?” question.

“I want listeners to feel inspired and not let the ‘now’ moments in life keep them from moving forward,” Shields said. “My goal for this podcast is to highlight the struggles we all face, to shed light on how universal our experiences are, and the importance of not giving up or not participating.”

Upcoming guests include actress Selma Blair who will discuss life’s darkest moments; actor Kal Penn to talk about race and casting in Hollywood and why he waited to come out; author Celeste Ng on how her own experiences influenced her writing; as well as award-winning actress Julianna Margulies on her decision to leave “ER”

“Brooke Shields is such an iconic and powerful figure in entertainment, and we’re honored to add her show to our rapidly growing list of original iHeartPodcasts,” said Will Pearson, COO of iHeart Podcast Network. “We hope this show will give our audience a new understanding of how to grow from the unexpected moments that life throws at you.”

Now what? With Brooke Shields will launch on October 11.
