Margot Adler: NPR Correspondent, Pagan Earth Religionist

| 9/25/2008 2:33:14 PM

In the almost 30 years that Margot Adler has worked with National Public Radio, she has covered social, health, and political issues for All Things Considered, Morning Edition, and many other shows. During that time, she has also been a practicing Pagan, a fact not often addressed in her professional life. Adler sat down with the radio show Interfaith Voices to talk about both paganism and public radio.

Adler, author of the book Drawing Down the Moon: Witches, Druids, Goddess-Worshippers, and Other Pagans in America Today, says she was drawn to Paganism partly due to the inspiration she drew as a woman from ancient goddesses, but also because of her connection to the environmental movement. In the interview Adler talks about the unthinking, “anti-ecological” tendencies displayed by many people, and how Paganism can help people connect with the earth.
