  • Host Bio – Krista Tippett

    Krista TippettKrista grew up in Oklahoma, went to the far-away land of Rhode Island to study at Brown University, and ended up in divided Germany for most of the 1980s, most of her 20s. She was The New York Times stringer in divided Berlin and reported and wrote as well for Newsweek, The International Herald Tribune, the BBC, and Die Zeit. Later she served as a special political assistant and chief Berlin aide to the U.S. Ambassador to West Germany.

    She wrote her book (Speaking of Faith), in part, to answer the question she is often asked — how she went from that mode of geopolitical engagement to becoming a religious person again and studying theology. When she emerged with a Master of Divinity from Yale in 1994, she saw a black hole where intelligent coverage of religion should be. As she conducted a far-flung oral history project for the Benedictines of St. John’s Abbey in Collegeville, Minnesota, she began to imagine radio conversations about the spiritual and intellectual content of faith that would enliven and open imaginations and public discussion.

    When she is not making radio — and even when she is — she is a mother of two, an avid reader of literary mystery novels, a practitioner of yoga, and a lover of great science fiction — currently hanging on every episode of Battlestar Galactica.
