About On Being
Krista Tippett On Being is public radio's conversation about religion, meaning, ethics, and ideas.
Each week, Tippett focuses on a different theme, asking writers, scientists, historians, and others to discuss how religious impulses inform every aspect of life and culture, nationally and globally.
The program fills an important and neglected need in American media by addressing the intellectual and spiritual content of religion head-on, illuminating the ideas and practices that form the headlines from the inside.
The Columbia Journalism Review says of Tippett, "To listen to her show is to hear how intelligent and thoughtful religious people can be when they are allowed to be subjective and not merely regurgitate dogma."
