Podcasts I never miss:

The Rich Roll Podcast

“Each week Rich delves deep into all things wellness with some of the brightest and most forward thinking, paradigm busting minds in health, fitness, nutrition, art, entertainment, entrepreneurship & spirituality. Intimate, deep and often intense, these are not interviews. They are conversations. A weekly aural dance designed to provoke, educate, inspire and empower you to discover, uncover, unlock and unleash your best, most authentic self.”

On Being with Krista Tippett

On Being has its origins in a public radio show called Speaking of Faith, which was created by Krista Tippett, piloted in the early 2000s, and launched nationally at American Public Media in 2003. A journalist and former diplomat who had studied theology, Krista saw a black hole in media where intelligent conversation about religion, meaning, and moral imagination might be. Her show evolved into On Being and a pursuit of the ancient and enduring human questions that gave rise to our spiritual traditions and resonate through every institution anew in this century: what does it mean to be human, how do we want to live, and who will we be to each other?”

Dear Sugars

“A radically empathic advice show hosted by Cheryl Strayed and Steve Almond. Cheryl Strayed is the bestselling author of “Wild,” “Torch,” “Brave Enough” and “Tiny Beautiful Things,” a collection of her Dear Sugar columns. Steve Almond’s new book, “Bad Stories: Toward a Unified Theory of How It All Came Apart,” will be out in March 2018.”

Harry Potter and the Sacred Text

“Join Vanessa Zoltan and Casper ter Kuile as they bring thought, reflection and laughter to Harry Potter; not just as novels, but as instructive and inspirational texts that will teach us about our own lives. Relive the magic chapter by chapter as they explore themes such as ‘commitment, ‘revenge’ and ‘forgiveness’ This podcast creates time in your week to think about life’s big questions. Because reading fiction doesn’t help us escape the world, it helps us live in it.”
