Last month, long time NPR correspondent Margot Adler died of cancer at her home in New York.  She was 68. A fixture at NPR since 1979, she reported for All Things Considered, Morning Edition, and Weekend Edition, and she hosted NPR’s Justice Talking for 9 years. She was a civil rights worker in the 1960s, and, she wrote what many consider to be the definitive compendium of Pagan practice in the United States.  She understood that topic in part because she was a practitioner.  She was a Wiccan Priestess.  In March of 2012, Tom Hall spoke to Adler about politics, paganism and vampire literature. 

The book about vampires that Adler was working on during the time of this interview, was published as a Kindle Single on Amazon in June 2013. It's called Out for Blood. You can find more information here.
