    Daniel Kahneman – Why We Contradict Ourselves and Confound Each Other

    Daniel Kahneman – Why We Contradict Ourselves and Confound Each Other

    The classic economic theory embedded in western democracies holds an assumption that human beings will almost always behave rationally in the end and make logical choices that will keep our society balanced on the whole. Daniel Kahneman is the psychologist who won the Nobel Prize in Economics for showing that this is simply not true. There’s something sobering — but also helpfully grounding — in speaking with this brilliant and humane scholar who explains why none of us is an equation that computes. As surely as we breathe, we will contradict ourselves and confound each other.

    Living the Questions — We’ve been enmeshed with our technologies. Tech Shabbat for everyone?

    Living the Questions — We’ve been enmeshed with our technologies. Tech Shabbat for everyone?

    Krista’s been in a conversation with Tiffany Shlain for several years about her practice of “Tech Shabbat.” For more than a decade, she and her family have taken a rest from screens sundown Friday to sundown Saturday; her book 24/6 is a kind of manual to open the practice to everyone. After a year in which many of us have relied on our devices as our portals to reality — our sole connection to the people and places we love — Krista called Tiffany to talk about how this practice works. Might it be a reset and ritual we could all use?

    Hanif Abdurraqib — Moments of Shared Witnessing

    Hanif Abdurraqib — Moments of Shared Witnessing

    Hanif Abdurraqib’s writing is filled with lyricism, rhythm, people and precision. In his essays and poetry, he introduces readers to a soundscape of Black performance and Black joy: we hear hip-hop and jazz, we hear Nina Simone, Aretha Franklin and Little Richard. Music and performance of every kind are the source of his fascination, focus and wisdom: what makes people cry, or feel safe, or brave; held in struggle, joy, or love. Hanif is interviewed by our colleague, Pádraig Ó Tuama, a poet himself and the host of On Being Studios’ Poetry Unbound podcast, now in its third season.

    Layli Long Soldier — The Freedom of Real Apologies

    Layli Long Soldier — The Freedom of Real Apologies

    Layli Long Soldier is a writer, a mother, a citizen of the United States, and a citizen of the Oglala Lakota Nation. She has a way of opening up this part of her life, and of American life, to inspire self-searching and tenderness. Her award-winning first book of poetry, WHEREAS, is a response to the U.S. government’s official apology to Native peoples in 2009, which was done so quietly, with no ceremony, that it was practically a secret. Layli Long Soldier offers entry points for us all — to events that are not merely about the past, and to the freedom real apologies might bring.

Just wonderful

Wonderful in every aspect, love the hosts voice!

Shallow

Krista Tippett‘s voice is the nicest I‘ve ever heard and I‘m sure she is a lovely person. Furthermore, she has very interesting guests. The downside is that she is a really bad interviewer. I listened to many episodes where the guest made a claim where every person in his or her right mind thinks „That‘s interesting, could you elaborate on that? How is F and G you mentioned connected, what do you mean by this or that?“
Sadly, Krista ALWAYS moves on to some other boring biographical point on her list. Often time she just reads our passages or quotes, and then says „What a beautiful thought“ - even though there is still loads to unpack. So yeah, if you care about analyzing ideas and depth, this podcast won‘t be for you.

Absolutely inspiring

On being is an inspiring and very interesting podcast which sharpens my awareness and consciousness about what it means to be human: poetry, art, relationships, peace, political perspectives, understanding and love. Krista Tippets way of talking and the sound of her voice make me feel extremely calm and almost have a meditative effect on me while my hearts is truly touched. Thank you and keep up the good work!
