Podcast inspiration: On Being

ImageSo, I am slightly obsessed with podcasts. As in, I subscribe to far more podcasts than any human could possibly listen to in one week. Lately, I’ve been trying to be more selective about which ones I try to keep up with (it’s like trying to watch all the show series on HBO – there are just too many good ones and you have to let some go, unless you want to be glued to your television all weekend long). But I came across one that is totally worth following, and I just had to share it.

It’s called On Being, and listening to it has made my mornings so much more peaceful and thoughtful. The central question for each show is: What does it mean to be human, and how do we want to live? The host, Krista Tippet, interviews some incredible people and asks them really thought-provoking questions about mindfulness, spirituality, knowledge, and imagination. So far I’ve listened to ones featuring Thich Naht Hanh, Brian Greene, and the Indigo Girls. The most motivating one of all for me was featuring Brene Brown, on the courage to be vulnerable. The picture above is a graphic recording of her interview. I highly recommend it.
