On Being

Sundays 11 a.m. to noon

On Being is a social enterprise with a radio show at its heart.On Being is a Peabody Award-winning public radio conversation and podcast, a Webby Award-winning website and online exploration, a publisher and public event convener. On Being opens up the animating questions at the center of human life: What does it mean to be human, and how do we want to live? We explore these questions in their richness and complexity in 21st-century lives and endeavors. We pursue wisdom and moral imagination as much as knowledge; we esteem nuance and poetry as much as fact.On Being is the home of On Being Studios and the Civil Conversations Project, an emergent approach to new conversation and relationship across the differences of our age. On Being’s listeners, readers, and online communities cross boundaries that separate them in the culture at large: generational, socioeconomic, political, religious. They report that On Being equips them to relate in fresh, new ways to different others, and emboldens them to engage in new kinds of service.Krista first created the show — originally called Speaking of Faith — at Minnesota Public Radio/American Public Media. It launched on weekly, public radio stations across the U.S. in 2003. In 2013, On Being transitioned to an independent production (Krista Tippett Public Productions) and relocated to Loring Park in Minneapolis. Krista Tippett Public Productions is a charitable organization exempt from taxation under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.On Being airs on more than 400 public radio stations across the U.S., and is distributed by Public Radio Exchange (PRX). Our podcast reaches a global audience. We keep finding new ways to listen to our listeners and online communities, and they keep pointing new ways forward for this adventure.
