When people start talking about religion and spirituality, it can get awkward.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
In fact, it shouldn’t be. Exploring and discovering what faith and spirituality are about is essential to human progress.
That’s why I brought on a very special guest today for Episode 98 of The School of Greatness.
Krista Tippett is one of the leading voices in American radio on this very topic. She is a former freelance foreign correspondent for the New York Times, a Peabody Award-winning broadcaster and a New York Times bestselling author.
In our open and fascinating conversation, she discusses what she has learned about humanity in her ten-years of hosting OnBeing, a top-rated iTunes podcast about faith.
