On Being




    Get all of Krista Tippett’s interviews – with thought leaders you know, and others you’ll want to meet. On Being is an ongoing conversation. We explore the animating questions at the center of human experience: What does it mean to be human? How do we want to live? How to love? How to be of service to each other and the world?

    From emerging science to spiritual technologies, from current affairs to lived theology, On Being invites you to lean into life’s mysteries and uncertainties with greater respect, ease, energy, and hope. A Peabody Award-winning show heard on more than 400 public radio stations, On Being is independent media.

    The On Being app is straightforward and elegant:

    ≥ Listen to 10+ years of in-depth conversations.
    ≥ Receive a new episode – with rich, intelligent production – every Thursday.
    ≥ Create a list of episodes for later listening – on topics including physics, theology, parenting, neuroscience, health, meditation, spirituality, technology, and much more.
    ≥ Share your favorite episodes by text, email, Facebook, and Twitter.

    The On Being app provides unfettered access and easy listening – whether you're driving, exercising, or unwinding.

    On Being – Trust the Conversation.

    Krista herself is 5 star! Overall, the app is easy to use. It can be glitchy at times, however. Overall, well worth downloading! I just encourage the developers to continue attending to any errors in this app. Krista, however, should stay exactly as she is :-)

    Stepping away from the unequivocal quality and depth of Krista's interviews, the app itself comes up just a bit short. I am unable to choose where to save selected episodes to, downloads themselves are sometimes buggy needing me to click more than once to set it up. Consequently, the whole download process seems to be clunky. I end up listening to new podcasts when traveling and intentionally offline, and so the download experience becomes quite a critical component of my app usage! The downloaded podcasts can be paused, by the way. And the app hasn't yet crashed on me on Android.

    I adore all of On Being's programs, but this app keeps crashing.
