Maureen Fiedler

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 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. She’s ecstatic that 10 years of Hebrew school have finally come in handy.

Patrick Montague

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.
