Host and Executive Producer
Maureen Fiedler is the host and creator of Interfaith Voices. She has been involved in interfaith activities for more than three decades as an active participant in coalitions working for social justice, racial and gender equality, and peace. Her special interests lie at the intersection of theology and public policy. She holds a Ph.D. in Government from Georgetown University.
Laura brings to the show her love of radio and oral history. The senior producer since 2007, she is especially intrigued by the mysterious, mystical side of religion. She holds a master’s degree from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism, and studied psychology and film studies at the College of William and Mary. She has won five journalism awards for the show, most recently for her story on the sacred musical traditions of ancient Syria. She’s ecstatic that 10 years of Hebrew school have finally come in handy.
Before joining Interfaith Voices, Arielle reported for In These Times magazine in Chicago and KPFA radio in Berkeley. She studied radio at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies in Portland, ME and anthropology at Pitzer College in Claremont, CA. When she isn't making or listening to public radio, she is riding her bike, petting other people's dogs, and asking big questions. Arielle's website is ariellezionts.com
Libby holds a Master of Arts in Religion from Westminster Theological Seminary and an M.A. in Mesopotamian Studies from the University of Michigan. After spending most of her twenties as a graduate student, Libby chose to venture outside of academia and is thrilled to have joined the team at Interfaith Voices. In addition to theology and public radio, she enjoys high quality television drama and playing with her miniature schnauzer.
Katie earned a B.A. in religious studies and English from St. Mary's College of Maryland in 2014 and is currently pursuing a master's in Conflict Resolution at Georgetown University. She loves writing and researching, and is constantly looking for ways to combine her passion for theology, politics, and literature. In her spare time, she likes to hike, play with her dog, and drink copious amounts of coffee.
