Soul Search Podcast

Tara C. Trapani

Today in the blog, we highlight Soul Search, a podcast by the Australian Broadcasting Company, which “explores contemporary religion and spirituality from the inside out — what we believe, how we express it, and the difference it makes in our lives.” 

Mary Evelyn Tucker was recently interviewed on the podcast by Meredith Lake in an episode about Sacred Landscapes: religion and ecology around the Pacific, along with Tongan pastor, Jione Havea. This episode was part of a series on Sacred Landscapes that also included the forests as mirror and sanctuary and the mountains and spiritual freedom

Though the podcast is not expressly about the environment and ecological concerns, there is much of interest to those in the field, including episodes from an Australian Indigenous perspective, like this one with elder Rose Elu on the impact of climate change on the Torres Strait, or this episode on The Wisdom of Deep Listening with Aboriginal elder and Senior Australian of the Year, Dr Miriam Rose Ungunmerr-Baumann. Other episodes of interest include Green Buddhism with Stephanie Kaza and The Spirituality of the Sea with Pacific Islander and minister, Rev Dr Seforosa Carroll.
