Krista Tippett on Being

  • Tuesday 1 p.m.–2 p.m.
  • Tuesday 10 p.m.–11 p.m.
  • Sunday 7 a.m.–8 a.m.

Being is a spacious conversation — and an evolving media space — where big questions help you to explore the center of human life, from the boldest new science of the human brain to the most ancient traditions of the human spirit. Host Krista Tippett probes these questions in all the variety, richness, and complexity with which they find expression in your contemporary life.

    Nadia Bolz-Weber — Seeing the Underside and Seeing God: Tattoos, Tradition, and Grace

    She’s the tattooed, Lutheran pastor of the House for All Sinners and Saints in Denver, a church where a chocolate fountain, a blessing of the bicycles, and serious liturgy come together. She's a face of the Emerging Church — redefining what church is, with deep reverence for tradition.

    Scott Atran — Hopes and Dreams in a World of Fear [remix]

    Scott Atran — Hopes and Dreams in a World of Fear

    For over a decade, the French-American anthropologist Scott Atran has been listening to the hopes and dreams of young people from Indonesia to Egypt. He explores the human dynamics of what we analyze as “breeding grounds for terrorism” — why some young people become susceptible to them and others, in the same circumstances, do not. His work sheds helpful light on the question on so many of our minds as we watch horrific news of the day: How could this happen — and how could we possibly help transform it?

    Nathan Schneider — The Fabric of Our Identity

    Nathan Schneider — The Fabric of Our Identity

    The fourth in a four-part series, "The American Consciousness."

    There’s a kind of brilliance that flashes up in early adulthood: an ability to see the world whole. Nathan Schneider has been able to articulate and sustain that far-seeing eye of young adulthood. He’s also a gifted writer, chronicling the world he and his compatriots are helping to make — spiritual, technological, and communal. At the Chautauqua Institution, we explore the wisdom of a millennial generation public intellectual on the emerging fabric of human identity.

    Michel Martin — The Fabric of Our Identity

    Michel Martin — The Fabric of Our Identity

    The third in a four-part series, "The American Consciousness."

    If journalism is a primary way we tell the story of ourselves and our time, Michel Martin is a person helping us tell that story — and take part in it — more completely. Her daily NPR program Tell Me More was often labeled as “diversity” or “minority” programming. But in fact, she and her journalism are about a more generous and realistic sweep of who we are now — and how we’re creating our life together anew. At the Chautauqua Institution, we mine her wisdom on the emerging fabric of human identity.
