For the Summer Olympics, we explore a topic our listeners have called out as a passionate force and a connector across all kinds of boundaries in American culture: running. Not just as exercise, or as a merely physical pursuit, but running as a source of bonding between parents and children and friends; running as an interplay between competition and contemplation; running and body image and survival and healing.

Healing Our Fractured Civic Spaces
The Civil Conversations Project (CCP) is a series of podcasts, live events, and online resources for beginning new conversations in public life at every level. How do we speak the questions we don't know how to ask each other? Can we find ways to bridge gulfs between us about politics, morality, and life itself? Can we do that even while we continue to disagree, passionately? How is technology playing into all this, and how can we shape it? Krista Tippett draws out voices of wisdom, poetry, and practicality, one on one as well as in dialogue. They model a new kind of conversation and relationship with difference. They offer ideas and tools for healing our fractured civic spaces.
