As the website for the project notes, “On Being is a social enterprise with a radio show at its heart.” Winner of a Peabody Award and Webby Award (among others), the podcasts, articles, blogs, videos, and conversations on this site explore the deepest questions of what it means to be human from a diversity of perspectives. Krista Tippett, who hosts most of the podcasts, functions as a warm and incisive interlocutor, an educated interviewer, and a co-inquisitor. The award winning podcast Episodes, which can be downloaded or played from the website, shouldn't be missed. Recent topics have confronted The Grandeur and Limits of Science, explored The Future of Marriage, and explored The Body after Cancer. In addition, the blog features reflections by poets, journalists, and others, including world-renowned meditation teacher, Sharon Salzberg.
