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 received this poem and lovely tulip photos from Dorothee Lang, a writer and editor in Stuttgart, Germany who responded to our call for images and stories about the spirituality of gardening.
Spring is still in its infancy and we’re eager to hear from more of you. How are you spiritually nourished by growing things from the soil? What do you learn from tending to your garden plot that you carry forward into your lived life? Send us images of gardens you’ve nourished. Over the coming weeks, we’ll continue to feature your contributions on this blog.

Our Coverage of Climate Change

Trent Gilliss, online editor

Producers and reporters from American Public Media (SOF/Marketplace/American RadioWorks) are gathering to discuss collective climate change reporting. I will be tweeting ideas and following the comments section here.

What’s the story we want to tell, and how do we want to tell it? I’m glad to bring your suggestions into the large and small group discussions. Please help as we’re planning shows for the coming year — leading up to and following on the heels of Copenhagen conference in December.

I’d love to know how many Spaniards passed this tree. Maybe even Ponce de Leon as he searched for the “Fountain of Youth” on the Ichetuknee River.
