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.

What a gorgeous piece of music to wake up to: “Gayane’s Adagio” by the  Armenian composer Aram Khachaturian. He’s better known for his frenetic "Sabre Dance" but this performance by the St. Petersburg State Symphony Orchestra (conducted by Andre Anichanov) is a welcome contrast.
