Krista Tippett is an author, journalist and a Peabody Award winning broadcaster who is heard each Sunday on Iowa Public Radio. She grew up in Oklahoma, attended Brown University, and spent most of the 1980's in divided Germany. She was The New York Times stringer in Berlin and also reported 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 first 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 and student of theology.

As she conducted a far-flung oral history project for the Benedictines of St. John's Abbey in Collegeville, Minnesota, Tippett began to imagine radio conversations about the spiritual and intellectual content of faith that would enliven and open imaginations and public discussion. The show she created, initially called Speaking of Faith and later renamed On Being, is now heard on nearly 300 public radio stations and downloaded by millions as a podcast. Krista and her guests trace the ancient, animating questions of human existence: What does it mean to be human? What matters in a life? What matters in a death? How to love? How to be of service to each other and to the world?

Tippett initiates profound and often moving conversations with experts in a variety of disciplines: well-known physicists, a Darwinian scholar, respected surgeons, a widely-recognized psychologist. Tippett's goal, as her listeners know, is to understand how religious revelations, diverse spiritual practices, and cutting-edge advances in science and medicine can inspire and improve the way we live our lives.

In 2013, Tippett created an independent non-profit production company, Krista Tippett Public Productions, to be more nimbly responsive to the public life impact of On Being and the Civil Conversations Project.
Tippett lives in Minneapolis, MN and is currently at work on a new book slated for publication in 2014.
