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.


Rarely is there anything by or dedicated to composer Philip Glass that I can’t fall in love with. Beck’s 20-minute contribution, “NYC: 73-78,” on the soon-to-be-released Rework: Philip Glass Remixed (Oct 23) makes it all too easy to melt into my cubicle rolling chair.

Take a listen; you will not regret it.

We’ve got to get Krista Tippett and Philip Glass in a room together soon!
