  • 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.

He was championed by Yeats and Pound to become the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913.
