On Being Tumblr

On Being Tumblr

On Being with Krista Tippett is a public radio project delving into the human side of news stories + issues. Curated + edited by senior editor Trent Gilliss.

We publish guest contributions. We edit long; we scrapbook. We do big ideas + deep meaning. We answer questions.

We've even won a couple of Webbys + a Peabody Award.
When I listened to the show on the Palestinian camps and found out people could move out, but many do not for several reasons, I started to think of my relatives who choose to remain on the reservation in spite of the poverty. They do not want to leave the cultural and traditional ties they now have.

"American Indian Flag on 3rd Street"
by Trent Gilliss, senior editor
Terry Richardson’s Diary is one of my favorite Tumblr accounts. The blog’s simplicity is in its honest, on-the-fly photography. You can learn a lot about the United States and the world through Richardson’s lens, which is what I admire so much about this photo.
There’s something so clean and pristine about this tattered flag, but its fringes hint at the complex story of the indigenous populations’ relationships with U.S. history and contemporary culture.
