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 300 public radio stations, On Being is independent media.

- 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.

Needs 10 second reverse & forward buttons

Nanc RD

The interviews are so rich & meaty, that it sometimes requires the need to back up & rehear it again. The provided scrubbing option is so coarse; if I try to slide it back ever so slightly, it jumps back 2 or more minutes. So frustrating! Please update this app with 10 second reverse, and 10 second forward, buttons. 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

great content..not so great app


first off, I'd like to praise everyone involved in making this incredible archive of conversations. however, the app has some kinks to be worked out. I've had it for a few days now and these are the problems I've encountered so far: it closes almost every time I try to open it, requiring me to try sometimes 3-4x before finally loading completely. if you have to stop listening and come back later (or if it shuts down itself) you have to start the full recording over, otherwise try to fight with the play bar to get somewhat close to where you left off. a feature I think would be of great use is a topic search, not only a title search. with all that said, if you are patient enough, this is a wonderful app that will likely only get better as newer versions are developed.

On Being: my go to source for inspirational, knowledgeable dialogue


I was so excited when I discovered the On Being app. I had been following on Facebook for sometime. The app is easy to use. I can search for topics that I am feeling a need to explore it to remind me or reenforce some part of my spiritual journey. I enjoy listening to people that I have read their works or being introduced to new and amazing people.

I usually hear something that I share with someone and the dialogue becomes a part of my life.

Great assistance when one asks for assistance for app--responsive and kind. Will be listening for years to come!
