Which Public Radio Host Are You? You're Fresh Air host Terry Gross. You're extremely punctual, always prepared, and pack a verbal punch much bigger than your tiny frame. The whole world dreads the day you decide to retire.
Terri Gross--from her interview with Vanity Faire. Q: Which historical figure do you most identify with? A: It’s hard to choose from among the many short Jewish women celebrated in the history books I read in school.
This is a deeply moving and poignant interview. In the interview Terry Gross names the pain of Sister Pat Farrell as she deals with the vow of obedience and the ability to have a questioning theological mind in the church. I greatly recommend this interview for those interested in the role of women in any church structure.
