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.

With Pope JPII’s canonization into sainthood on Sunday, a look back. In 2005, we produced a retrospective on the late pope’s religious legacy after his death. Krista speaks with NPR’s Sylvia Poggioli, priest + author Donald Cozzens, and Yale theologian Margaret Farley. Together they explore some of the critical religious issues of his 26 years as pontiff and discusses the great and contradictory impact he made on the Church in America and abroad.
