Margot Adler on Paganism and Public Radio August 01, 2014
In 1979, Margot Adler became a reporter for NPR. That same year, she wrote Drawing Down the Moon, a book that would become a classic in the pagan world, describing the emerging movement of witches, druids and goddess worshippers with humanity and intelligence. She was both an explainer of the movement and a devout practioner, and one of the first public Wiccan priestesses.

This week, we listen back to our 2008 interview with Adler, in which she reflects on her two roles as a journalist and Wiccan icon. Margot Adler died on July 28th at the age of 68, after battling cancer.
