NPR, APM, PRI...These are some of my favorite things

Krista Tippet hosted a show called "Speaking of Faith" on American Public Media.  She now hosts "Being"; I think the old name was better.  Either way the show is how I imagine religious discourse should be: it's honest, non-judgmental, and often compelling. 

Her recent show with feminist-Mormon scholar Joanna Brooks is fantastic.  In it, Brooks describes the difficulty of being a heterodox believer in a tradition that puts a premium on orthodoxy.  Take a listen when you get a chance.  I think it exemplifies the individual relationship with deity that we all must forge.
