The MWS Podcast 107: Krista Tippett on Becoming Wise

Our guest today is the journalist and best-selling author Krista Tippett. Krista has her own series of podcasts from her On Being radio programme on NPR in the US, that stretches back 15 years. In that time Krista has interviewed a diverse array of inspirational people including scientists, theologians and artists. I talk to her about her experience of this and about her book “Becoming Wise: An Inquiry into the Mystery and Art of Living” which draws on the wisdom of many of the people she has interviewed and is also interwoven with the story of her own spiritual journey. We discuss this through the five key topics in her book which are Words, Flesh, Love, Faith and Hope. Finally, we discuss the Middle Way and how this relates to her work.

About Barry Daniel

I live in the Lake District in the UK where I run a guesthouse with my partner Kate and my cat Manuel. I enjoy painting, hillwalking, reading, visiting and entertaining friends, T’ai Chi and playing the guitar. I’m engaged to a certain degree in the local community, as a volunteer with Samaritans and I’m a fairly active member of the local Green party. I’ve had a relatively intuitive sense of the Middle Way most of my adult life but it found a greater articulation and a practical direction through joining the society. It’s also been interesting and great fun engaging with other people with a similar outlook. My main contribution to the society is conducting the podcast interviews, something that gives me a lot of satisfaction and that I’ve learnt a lot from.
