Episode Description

Does anxiety stop you in your tracks when you think of following your dream? It used to stop today's guest, Gloria Squitiro, until she started fighting for things she believed in - including her husband's grassroots campaign for Mayor of Kansas City, Missouri. Her hard work and newly acquired fearlessness helped her husband, Mark Funkhouser, win the mayor's race. But, neither of them were prepared for the cutthroat politics that ensued. Gloria became the only First Lady in America who was legally banned from City Hall while her husband was in office. Since her husband had been a well-respected city auditor for 18 years, their political foes ultimately targeted her for their scandalous plot that the media called 'Mammygate'. Gloria survived to tell the tale in her new memoir, May Cause Drowsiness and Blurred Vision: The Side Effects of Bravery. It is her hope that her story will inspire other women to stand up and not be shut up, so that they can pursue their dreams, too.
