On Being is an iTunes Best of 2014 podcast and an independent media project that nurtures common life with an intellectually hospitable, open-hearted exploration of the animating questions at the center of human life: What does it mean to be human? How do we want to live? How can we be of service to each other and the world?

Krista Tippett and her guests reach beyond the headlines to explore reflection and action amidst the social, economic, and technological shifts of 21st century life. A Peabody and Webby Award-winning public radio show and website, On Being is independent media as social enterprise.
