Laura Kwerel
Senior Producer

Laura Kwerel brings to the show her love of radio and oral history. The senior producer since 2007, she has a special interest in the mystical, mysterious 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. Her 2010 series, The Soundscapes of Faith, is the winner of two awards for radio.

Catherine Roberts
Associate Producer

Catherine comes to the show from Tulsa, Oklahoma, where she covered city news, politics and development for the local public radio station, KWGS, as a staff reporter. Before that, she studied economics and English at the University of Tulsa. During her time at TU, she served as editor-in-chief of the student newspaper, spent a summer as an intern for APM's business and economics show Marketplace, and developed a habit of complaining about gender roles in television shows. 
 

 
Patrick Montague
Intern

Patrick is a rising senior at St. Mary’s College of Maryland. He majors in religious studies and physics with a mathematics minor, and his time outside of studying is spent climbing and playing Ultimate Frisbee with St. Mary’s Ultimate Team. He is drawn to religious studies by his fascination with trying to understand the beliefs of others and how it affects their lives. He hopes to explore the world of religious studies through his time at Interfaith Voices and to finally put his religious studies education to use outside of the classroom.
