A podcast of in-depth conversations with some of the world’s most prominent authors, artists, and cutting-edge thinkers. “Whether the subject is evolutionary paleontology or the culture of amateur hockey, whether guests are household names like Adrienne Clarkson or Salman Rushdie, or less well-known but important thinkers like Malcolm Gladwell or Edward O. Wilson, this show endeavours to reach beyond the headlines to explore the forces that create the news,” says Gregg. By investigating not merely the whats of current affairs but also the whys, Allan Gregg in Conversation tries to give viewers a context in which to understand the world around them.

On Being

About Podcast Station:
The On Being Project is an independent non-profit public life and media initiative. They pursue deep thinking and social courage, moral imagination and joy, to renew inner life, outer life, and life together.

This podcast is led by Krista Tippett. Krista became a journalist and diplomat in Cold War Berlin. She lived in Spain and England before seeking a Masters of Divinity at Yale University in the mid-1990s. Emerging from that, she saw a black hole where intelligent conversation about the religious, spiritual, and moral aspects of human life might be. On Being — is the result.

Mary Oliver.
According to Wikipedia Mary Oliver has won the National Book Award and the Pulitzer PrizeThe New York Times described her as “far and away, this country’s best-selling poet.” She is possibly most famous for her poem which ends

Tell me, what is it you plan to do
With your one wild and precious life?

She’s just released a new volume, Felicity, at the age of 80. And so this hour, On Being revisits the rare interview she granted them on the world and poetry — and the life behind her writing.

Naomi Shihab Nye.
Here’s how On Being introduces Naomi Shihab Nye: “When you’re in a very quiet place, when you’re remembering, when you’re savoring an image, when you’re allowing your mind calmly to leap from one thought to another, that’s a poem.” Naomi Shihab Nye’s poem “Kindness” has traveled around the world. She grew up between Ferguson, Missouri, Ramallah, and Jerusalem. She insists that language must be a way out of cycles of animosity. She’d have us notice “petite discoveries” that embolden us to choose human nourishment over division. “Before you know what kindness really is / you must lose things.”
