The Story (APM) http://thestory.org/

One of The Story’s listeners sent us an e-mail that captured our goal for the stories we tell: "Thanks for finding the ordinary us and putting our stories out there."  The Story’s goal is to find people whose lives are intersecting with significant issues in the news and give them the opportunity to tell their story.

At a time when "celebrity rules" and the only "ordinary" people we see are faces in the crowd, The Story reminds listeners that their stories and their lives matter. The Story is produced at North Carolina Public Radio - WUNC and is hosted by Dick Gordon. Monday through Friday, 1 to 2 pm.

 FM onbeing

On Being (APM) http://being.publicradio.org/

On Being is a spacious conversation about the big questions at the center of human life, from the boldest new science of the human brain to the most ancient traditions of the human spirit. The program began as an occasional series on Minnesota Public Radio in 1999, then became a monthly national program in September 2001, and launched as a weekly program titled Speaking of Faith in the summer of 2003.

Host Krista Tippett’s program draws out the intellectual and spiritual content of religion that should nourish our common life, but that is often obscured precisely when religion enters the news. On Being has both responded and contributed to a growing acknowledgement that there are basic questions of meaning that pertain to the entire human experience. Sundays at 7 am.
