Q:where can I get a transcript for the show with Frances Kissling? Since I cannot enter my email address, how will I find out where I can get a transcript for the show?
Why hello! Each week’s show has a website dedicated to it, which features all sorts of recommended resources and texts, a streaming playlist of all the music tracks selected for the production, and a free transcript. Here’s a link to the transcript for “Listening Beyond Life and Choice” with Frances Kissling.
Thanks for the question.

- Ms. Tippett: So Sylvia, one thing following on that. Lovingkindness meditation is also towards one's self. You share a story in your writing about precisely that, but you share what you often say to yourself when you're in a moment of anxiety. OK. So I think this is just great advice. I'm going to hang onto this. "Sweetheart, you are in pain. Relax, take a breath, let's pay attention to what is happening, then we'll figure out what to do." I think that's a fabulous sentence for one's self and for one's children.
- Dr. Boorstein: I'm so pleased that you found that. It's tremendously pleasing to me because I meet people in some significant numbers who tell me that they say to themselves in moments of distress. I say — they say, "I say to myself, 'Sweetheart, you're in pain. Relax, take a breath.'" I love that. A whole bunch of people out there saying to themselves, "Sweetheart."
