Podcasts have been a lifesaver for me…they awaken my sleepy soul in the mornings as I get ready for my day, help me survive my 1 hour commutes and keep me company while cooking up weeknight dinners.
Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of the On Being podcasts with Krista Tippet…”On Being is a spacious conversation — and an evolving media space — about the big questions at the center of human life, from the boldest new science of the human brain to the most ancient traditions of the human spirit. The program began as an occasional series on Minnesota Public Radio in 1999, then became a monthly national program in September 2001, and launched as a weekly program titled Speaking of Faith in the summer of 2003. ” From their site.
I loved the conversation with Anthony Appiah, a once aspiring and struggling medical student turned happy philosopher. A great conversation on bridging differences & graciously navigating this world of diversity of beliefs & opinions, to one where we are able recognize the common human thread…what it means to live a life of significance & what truly holds relevance to the human spirit.
