Interfaith Voices

Interfaith Voices is the nation's only public radio show exclusively about religion. We were born just three days after 9/11, when a feisty nun got the idea to host a multi-faith panel on religion and terrorism, live on the radio. The phones rang off the hook, and it became clear that listeners were hungry for informed, respectful dialogue on religion in the public square. We carry on that mission today with our free, weekly podcast...led by that same unstoppable nun-turned-radio host, Maureen Fiedler.
