I just recorded a short radio commentary for weekly radio show State of Belief. Their website explains,
State of Belief is based on the proposition that religion has a positive and healing role to play in the life of the nation. The show explains and explores that role by illustrating the vast diversity of beliefs in America -– the most religiously diverse country in the world -– while exposing and critiquing both the political manipulation of religion for partisan purposes and the religious manipulation of government for sectarian purposes.
The piece I wrote is about the multifaith world of religion blogging; it's also a little bit about the Progressive Faith Blog Con which is coming up soon.
State of Belief is a production of The Interfaith Alliance Foundation and Air America Radio. I'm psyched to be able to spread the word about the blog con -- and about the corner of the religious blogosphere I'm proud to inhabit -- across the airwaves. In brief, of course. My commentary is only a few minutes long. But it was fun to write and record, even so.
(As an added bonus, after I recorded my commentary associate producer Thaler Pekar got on the line and told me she loves my haggadah. What an unexpected treat!)
The show will air on Sunday from 5-6pm EST; here's a list of ways you can listen, from tuning in to your local radio station (if Air America is broadcast near you), to streaming the audio on your computer, to downloading the show via iTunes (it should be available by Monday morning). Please do listen, and let me know what you think!
