SAINT PAUL, MN – January 28, 2013 – A small group of Minnesota Pagans seek to bring a fresh perspective to the challenges of today’s world by launching a weekly television news and commentary show, The Pagan Voice. Whether exploring religious discrimination, gender equality, sustainable living, sexual rights, or profiling extraordinary people, the journalism team seeks to bring a fresh voice to the marketplace of ideas.
“Pagans have a different way of understanding our relationship with each other and our world” says the show’s founder Dr. Todd Berntson, “it is our hope that by bringing this perspective to bear on some of the most difficult social challenges of our time, we can help make the world a peaceful and humanizing place.”
The original concept for the show was formed in May, 2012, when Dr. Berntson’s cousin died and he was barred from attending the funeral by his family because he was Pagan and not welcome in their church. He recalls, “at that moment, I knew that I had to do something to stop the discrimination against Pagans. I thought the best way to do this was to help other people to see the world as we do.”
The project has not been without its share of challenges. “Despite having almost no money and even less experience, ” says co-anchor Briana Crusan, “we have pulled together a team of volunteers who have done what no one else thought we could do.” Co-anchor Michelle Ploog adds “we are all just committed to the vision of giving the Pagan community a voice. We are like the ‘little show that could.’”
Each 60 minute episode of The Pagan Voice features news headlines, interviews, commentary, and profiles of people who are making a difference in the world. The show was recently picked up by several public television stations around the US, and is currently being considered by one of the satellite stations. The Pagan Voice can be viewed on the Pagan Living TV website at: http://www.PaganLiving.TV. The website also contains information about how to view the program on your local cable station and how to help support their efforts.
The Pagan Voice has recently launched a major fundraising campaign to purchase needed studio equipment. “We have proven that we can do this” says Dr. Berntson, “but we need the resources to purchase the necessary equipment to sustain our growth.”
The Pagan Voice is produced by Pagan Living TV a Minnesota Non-Profit Corporation whose mission is to produce educational and news programming from a Pagan perspective.
