Speaking of Faith is a public radio program about “religion, spirituality, and large questions of meaning in every aspect of life”. This program regularly interviews writers, researchers, and scholars whose work focuses on enriching the human experience.
Back in November, Dr. Adele Diamond, our lab director and the organizer of the BDL conference was interviewed about her research. Her work has highlighted the importance of play, dance, sports, and music in promoting healthy child development.

The program does a great job of encouraging you to think about science and religion in ways you may never have before, and does so from a neutral standpoint that allows the discussion of these topics to be constructive rather than divisive as they are in so many other forums.
The program has a companion blog which further elucidates issues of religion and science, and how we can reconcile the two in today’s society.
