In Maia’s podcast introduction, she explains she is a ‘huge history nerd’ and will be sharing some of her favourite deep cuts. She will speak about the ‘untold stories, gross facts, hidden secrets and anything weird, dark or funky from the past’. She says …
‘We’ll be digging into sports beefs, beauty pageants scandals, music right fights, apocalyptic near misses, revolutionary wars and my personal favourites – surprised billboard hits that launched unknown artists into musical stardom.’
Maia will also share her personal history with her listeners, like the time she interacted with Andy Samberg on Twitter. Cool, right?
Maia is a strong activist, speaking openly on Twitter and TikTok about her passions surrounding Black Lives Matter and empowering the LGTBQ+ community. The artist has also been openly vocal about her opposing beliefs with the Trump Administration. She states …
‘If 2020 has proved anything, it's that the world can keep throwing things at you even when it's already crazy and horrible. Speaking out on issues I believe in has always been incredibly important to me, especially in this time where being proactive is more important than ever. It's about fighting for the issues that are really important and doing what we can for the world.’
