The Biggest Questions
The Biggest Questions Podcast is a faculty-driven project sponsored by our Martin Marty Center for the Public Understanding of Religion. Episodes are available on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, and SoundCloud (or wherever you get your podcasts). In addition, episodes and transcripts are available on The Marty Center's website.
Hosted by Professors Kevin Hector and Jeffrey Stackert, The Biggest Questions Podcast features interview-style conversations with scholars, including Divinity School faculty members. Its aim is lively discussion of both the broad range of ideas and practices that constitute religion and how scholars make sense of them. The name of the podcast, then, is meant in both of its senses: as a set of conversations on religion, it addresses what are for many their biggest and most important concerns. At the same time, in engaging new research, these conversations will probe the most pressing questions of the scholars interviewed. We will even put the question to each of our guests directly: “What’s your biggest question?” (and perhaps even its corrolate, “What’s your smallest question?”).
