Susie MeisterSusie Me-ister was born and raised in Pittsburgh, but after high school joined MTV’s Road Rules: Australia for the ride of her life. She has since done Road Rules: Viewers Revenge and six Real World Road Rules Challenges (but don’t judge her!).  She has been an on-air contributor for PBS/WQED’s “OnQ,” editor of Maniac Magazine, and featured in local and national advertising campaigns.

Susie has a PhD in Religious Studies from the University of Pittsburgh.  Her research focuses on evangelical Christianity in the United States and her dissertation is called “Presents of God: The Marketing of the American Prosperity Gospel.”  She also produced the documentary, The Revolving Door Faith Club.

Despite Susie’s academic career, she just can’t shake her love for media, and now hosts The Meister Piece podcast. The show features interviews with celebrities and is available on iTunes. She hopes one day to be best friends with Lisa Ling, but in the meantime, will settle for interviews with movers, shakers, and seventies icons.
