The Distance of the Moon

Every so often, when I'm alone on the job, I pull up a podcast to listen to. Yesterday it was this:

The Distance of the Moon - Radiolab

(If you click on the link, you'll go directly to the site.)

I had no idea what it was, and I was blown away by it.

Highly recommended!

  1. I think you'd love this one, from my favorite public radio program, On Being.

    This is last weekend's program (last weekend, i.e. when the program broadcasts here). It was fascinating. Not every show is as appealing to me personally, of course, but that isn't the point and it doesn't matter.

    Until recently the title of her show was "Speaking Of Faith" It was about on all the paths of spirituality throughout the world -- but utterly neglecting those from Africa, and which came to the New World via the slave trade. She's had long conversations with yogis but never with a houngan, for instance. She's never spoken with a babalawo, though she will talk with Native American shamans. She talks with Mormon patriarchs, but not healers from Mexico.

    Now she's changed the title of her program so she can deal with more secular matters.

    Love, C.
