Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés Becomes TMV’s New Managing Editor
We’re pleased to announce that Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés has agreed to become The Moderate Voice’s new Managing Editor, replacing the aptly named Pete Abel who has decided to take a long break from the blogosphere and regular Internet news and analysis writing. Pete will be missed but we do hope to get him back to do occasional contributions, his new non-blogging schedule permitting.
Dr. Estés is fondly known by her colleagues as “Dr. E.” She is a registered Independent, once belonging to both wild Democratic and wilder Republican parties. A Latina Catholic, she was raised in an immigrant/refugee family in small-town northern Indiana (Pop: 600). She writes about psychology and cultural groups, including age, racial, gender, military, corporate, governmental, mainstream and sub-cultural groups.
Dr. Estés is a columnist for The National Catholic Reporter. Her audio works are published by Sounds True, which are available as CDs and digital downloads and have been broadcast over numerous National Public Radio and community public radio stations throughout Canada and the United States. Her masterwork, The Dangerous Old Woman: Myths and Stories of the Wise Woman Archetype, also available on CD, is produced by Sounds True, and taught live online throughout 2010 and 2011.
She is a former welfare mother who aimed for college; earned a post-doctoral diploma as a certified Jungian Psychoanalyst, via charter of IAAP, Zurich. Dr. E. is also the author of the in-depth psychology book, Women Who Run With the Wolves, which has been published in 36 languages worldwide and was on the New York Times bestseller list for 144 weeks.

One of the things I like best about “Dr. E’s” writing is that it is so mutli-layered, going beyond the typical political posts run by weblogs. And she never forgets to remind us of the human side of the news.
Dr. Estes originally started on TMV doing Guest Voice posts, then became a co-blogger and then Deputy Managing Editor. She is greatly liked by TMV’s diverse group of writers and its readers of all political persuasions.
