Public radio's weekly conversation about religion, meaning, ethics and ideas.
Speaking of Faith with Krista Tippett is public radio's conversation about religion, meaning, ethics, and ideas. Each week, Tippett probes the myriad ways in which religious impulses inform every aspect of life and culture, nationally and globally. Speaking of Faith fills an important and neglected need in American media by addressing the intellectual and spiritual content of religion head-on, illuminating the ideas and practices that form the headlines from the inside.
Now in its fourth year as a weekly program, Speaking of Faith has brought an unprecedented range of religious perspectives, voices, and topics to listeners on-air and online. The Columbia Journalism Review says of Tippett: "To listen to her show is to hear how intelligent and thoughtful religious people can be when they are allowed to be subjective and not merely regurgitate dogma."
Speaking of Faith is carried on over 165 stations across the country, and reaches nearly half a million listeners each week. In the past year, the program has seen a 42% increase in cume.
Speaking of Faith host and writer Krista Tippett is a journalist and former diplomat with a Master of Divinity degree from Yale University. Tippett says, "The human religious and spiritual impulse is present in all of the most important and intriguing challenges before us. Our goal is to treat religious people and religious ideas with the same curiosity, intelligence and seriousness with which public radio treats every other fundamental aspect of human life."
In 2005, Speaking of Faith's Web site, www.speakingoffaith.org, was honored with a Webby award for best religion and spirituality Web site. The Webby Award is an international award honoring excellence in Web design, creativity, usability, and functionality presented by The International Academy of Digital arts and sciences.
In 2004, Speaking of Faith was honored with a 2004 Gabriel Award from The Catholic Broadcasters Association for its program "Joe Carter and the Legacy of the African-American Spiritual." Speaking of Faith also received a 2004 Religion Communicator's Council Wilbur Award for "Progressive Islam in America" and "Religion in a Time of War." The show also won a 2002 Gracie Allen Award™ from the Foundation of American Women in Radio and Television, Inc. for "Religion and Disaster," the three-part series in response to events of September 11, 2001. The series featured the programs: "Where Was God?" "The Spirit of Islam," and "Justice and a Just War."
