Claire Swinarski

Co-Host of The Threshold Podcast

Hi! I'm Claire. I'm a writer living in the Milwaukee burbs with my Polish husband and wiggly baby. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (Go Badgers!) in 2013 and spent two years as a missionary with FOCUS inviting college women into a relationship with Jesus before moving back home to the northern tundra.

Now, I spend my days writing + podcasting. As a copywriter, I help business owners tell their story with clear, concise wording that tells people who they are and what they do. I was featured on the She Creates Business and Strategy Hour podcasts as an expert on all things written word. I'm also a freelance journalist with bylines in The Washington Post, Seventeen, Cosmopolitan, Good Housekeeping, Mom.Me, Woman Getting Married, Veil, Bridal Guide, Bride & Groom, Redbook, Vox, Fusion, and a whole bunch more.

In 2017 I launched the podcast on International Women's Day. I was tired of arguing over spaghetti straps instead of dealing with the real issues women face in the Church and the world at large. I've also been featured as an expert on all things Catholic Feminism on Catching Foxes, How-to Catholic, The Jennifer Fulwiler Show, Girlfriends with Danielle Bean, The Catholic Hipster Show, and Pantsuit Politics. I've also spoken at local parishes and events on why Jesus was a feminist and how to evangelize in the every day.
