Catching up with podcast host and award-winning columnist Mary C. Curtis

As a very young woman from Baltimore, Mary C. Curtis’ journalism inspiration came from her lived experience.  Her family’s involvement in the civil rights movement coupled with strong work ethic catapulted her into a widely successful career.  Today Mary is the host of CQ Roll Call’s Equal Time podcast, an award-winning columnist, an NPR contributor and a senior facilitator for The OpEd Project — among many, many other interests.

She shares her inspiration for content creation through the use of historical perspective, a love of the arts and the need for self-care in today’s episode.  When asked who influences her, Mary highlights her strong network of colleagues, family and her book club during the conversation. She splits her time between Charlotte, N.C. and Washington, D.C. and offers some great perspective for FR listeners.
