The On Being Project

A few weeks ago, some of us in the studio were chatting about our favourites podcasts. A podcast series called On Being with Krista Tippett was mentioned, a show that began its life as a public radio program in the US two decades ago and has since evolved, recently launching into an accessible podcast stream.

In On Being, Krista interviews a series of thought leaders, philosophers, scientists, poets and other interesting people, having conversations at the intersection of spiritual inquiry, social healing, science, and culture. These generous discussions examine some enormous questions, including what it means to be human, how we want to live, and the kinds of people we will be to each other.

Some episodes we’ve loved and gained so much from thus far include:

Robin Wall Kimmerer on The Intelligence of Plants
Katherine May on How ‘Wintering’ Replenishes
Kimberley Wilson on Whole Body Mental Health
Matthieu Ricard on Happiness as Human Flourishing
Suzanne Simard on Forests Are Wired For Wisdom
Ocean Vuong on A Life Worthy of Our Breath
