On Being with Krista Tippett

Thursdays 8 - 9 p.m. and Sundays 6 - 7 a.m.
Krista Tippett

On Being is a spacious conversation about the big questions at the center of human life, from the boldest new science of the human brain to the most ancient traditions of the human spirit. The program began as an occasional series on Minnesota Public Radio in 1999, then became a monthly national program in September 2001, and launched as a weekly program titled Speaking of Faith in the summer of 2003.

On Being, as the show was re-named in 2010, has been awarded the highest honors in both broadcasting and electronic media — a Peabody and two Webby Awards.
