Image by: Tom Levy

On this week’s 51%, we’ll hear about a woman who takes on the Catholic Church by becoming a priest. And candid conversation on a web site about loss and grief. We’ll hear from the co-founder of that site.

We first bring you a story about a woman who says, yes, she broke the Church's Canon Law and she doesn’t care. She has found a place in Roman Catholic Women Priests. We go to San Francisco where Judy Silber reports for KALW’s Crosscurrents. 

Candid conversation about grief. Beginners welcome. That’s what is written under the words “Modern Loss,” the name of a web site focused on eliminating the stigma of discussing what it’s really like to live with grief and loss. Rebecca Soffer is CEO and co-founder of modernloss.com. When she was 30, her mother was killed in a car accident. Four years later, her father died of a heart attack. Rebecca Soffer spoke with 51%’s Joe Donahue and here is part two of a two-part interview. 

That was 51%’s Joe Donahue speaking with Rebecca Soffer, co-founder and CEO of modernloss.com. We brought you part one of the interview in show #1342.  

And that’s our show for this week. Thanks to Katie Britton for production assistance. Our executive producer is Dr. Alan Chartock. Our theme music is Glow in the Dark by Kevin Bartlett. This show is a national production of Northeast Public Radio.
