The Myth of Order

Speaking of Faith with Krista Tippett is public radio's Peabody Award-winning conversation about religion, meaning, ethics and ideas. Speaking of Faith has launched a program called Fishing with Mystery which caught my eye and ear as something that the Way Upstream community might be interested in, mainly because James Prosek was interviewed for one of the installments. In Fishing with Mystery, Speaking of Faith explores the sense of meaning and ritual James Prosek has developed along the way, including his concern with how we humans limit our sense of other creatures by the names we give them. Listeners will also hear the words of Henry David Thoreau, Bruce Chatwin, and Izaak Walton. Fishing with Mystery is on more than 200 public radio stations nationwide running through Wednesday, September 3. It will also be featured online at where you can download and podcast the program. Check out this James Prosek 5 minute narrated slideshow - SoundSeen: The Myth of Order.
