Nobel Prize-winning Physicist Frank Wilczek was on the On Being podcast with Krista Tippett, talking about his book A Beautiful Question: Finding Nature’s Deep Design.

Nobel physicist Frank Wilczek sees beauty as a compass for truth, discovery, and meaning. His book A Beautiful Question: Finding Nature’s Deep Design is a long meditation on the question: “Does the world embody beautiful ideas?” He’s the unusual scientist willing to analogize his discoveries about the deep structure of reality with deep meaning in the human everyday.

Jen Hatmaker was on the What Should I Read Next? Podcast, talking about her reading habits… Jen Hatmaker is known for speaking publicly about a lot of things but reading isn’t one of them! At least, not the books she’s really reading on her own time—and today you’re going to hear how different those titles are from what you probably EXPECT her to enjoy reading.




Two fascinating new books highlighted in this recent epsiode of the NY Times Books podcast. Interviews with David Sedaris about his new memoir, CALYPSO and Alisa Roth on her new book Insane: America’s Criminal Treatment of Mental Illness



On the Homebrewed Christianity podcast, Tripp Fuller talks with Bonnie Kristian about her new book, A Flexible Faith: Rethinking What It Means to Follow Jesus Today


And finally, on Book Riot’s Annotated podcast, the captivating story of a woman with no prior political experience who decided to run for city commission in her small college-town. So she went to the library, checked out a book called How to Win a Local Election. And she did. This is her story and the story of the book that helped her win.
