On Being

Kelly Moffitt | St. Louis Public Radio

Krista Tippett imparts the wisdom of the world’s great thinkers every week through her radio program On Being, but she wants you to take away something a little bit different from her new book, “Becoming Wise: An Inquiry into the Mystery and Art of Living.”

“Wisdom is not for the wise sages of history,” Tippett told St. Louis on the Air host Don Marsh. “Wisdom is something that is accessible to us and it emerges through the raw materials of our lives.”

Krista Tippett challenges listeners each week to explore the questions at the center of human life with her program “On Being.”  While examining religion, meaning, ethics, and ideas, she talks with a wide variety of guests representing many faiths, cultures and professions.
