Optimistic and Insightful

Stefani does a great job tackling urgent issues including sex, loneliness, religion, technology, science, and democracy. She deals with issues that hit us both emotionally and intellectually, things we need to think about to make our lives better. She interviewed me for her episode on Spirituality without Religion, and I’m pleased to say she really asked insightful questions. This podcast does the kind of thinking that helps to heal our fragile and conflicted world.

Love this podcast!

I spend most of my podcast-listening time on health and wellness podcasts, and I listened to Stefani for years on the Well Fed Women Podcast. I started listening to this podcast and it has been such a refreshing change from my usual podcast listening habits. I’m absolutely loving the topics Stefani addresses, and her perspectives on the topics addressed are wonderful to listen to as they diverge in some ways from some of the more dominant voices in the field currently, especially with regard to religion. Thank you, Stefani, for starting this podcast, it is a hugely valuable addition to the podcast world!

Religion and philosophy for the 21st century

Stefani Ruper and her work are a breath of fresh air to someone like myself who is a decidedly non-traditionally religious, passionately philosophical person. Rather than settling for platitudes, whether for or against these topics, Ruper respectfully yet lucidly explores these subjects, unafraid to point out structural points of weakness, get always on the spirit of seeking a deeper grasp of our situation(s).

Very excited to see this podcast come back so strong as Naked Humanity. Episode 30 is already great and I can’t wait for more!
