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.
Got broken into last Saturday. First, they tried to pry open the front door; then they found their way in through the back…
As far as we know, only a laptop was stolen, but it’s not my favorite way to be spending a holiday evening with my family. Nevertheless my lovely wife helped me clean it up and our landlord came immediately with a new piece of glass.
There’s a lot to be thankful for. And now we have an upgraded security system that I hope will put our staff’s mind a bit better at ease.

Wally is the electrician who has wired every square inch of On Being’s new offices on Loring Park. He’s always upbeat, never kvetches, and has a can-do attitude. Take this photo, for example. Here he is on a lift 17 feet in the air changing the location of an electrical box for the third time. (The HVAC installer ran his duct work right over the top of where a pendant light is supposed to hang.) Not a word. Just a slight smile and he forges ahead.

These are exactly the type of cats I imagined would be welding + installing our steel staircase. (at On Being on Loring Park)

We’ve got stairs!

The studio is in motion. Things are being built. This is all becoming very concrete and very real. On Being will be recording and editing from our new digs in Loring Park in October, for sure.

My colleague Stefni being rescued from the mezzanine by the electrician. (at Krista Tippett Public Productions)

I think of the lessons from Mt. Everest here: summiting is easy. Making it back to base camp is the real test.
