“On the air and in print, Ms. Tippett avoids easy answers, embracing complexity and inviting people of every background to join her conversation about faith, ethics, and moral wisdom.” – President Barack Obama

Krista Tippett is an award-winning broadcaster, author, and a National Humanities Medalist. She is the creator and host of On Being, a podcast that provides intelligent public conversation about the religious, spiritual, and moral aspects of human life. In 2014, President Obama awarded Tippett the National Humanities Medal at the White House for “thoughtfully delving into the mysteries of human existence.” 

Pico Iyer is a travel writer, essayist, and novelist, whose many books include Autumn Light, Video Night in Kathmandu, The Lady and the Monk, The Man Within My Head, and The Art of Stillness, a beautiful and thoughtful investigation of the benefits of quiet contemplation and travel to “nowhere.”
