Interview with Nikki Stern

Nikki Stern’s first book, Because I Say So: the Dangerous Appeal of Moral Authority, explored a cultural standard of unequivocal moral certainty through the lens of her experience as a 9/11 widow. Her newest book, Hope in Small Doses, was released this spring and takes a natural next step in exploring how hope might be sustained, even in the wake of tragedy and uncertainty. Following her husband’s death on 9/11, Nikki challenged herself to find meaning, even as–especially as–a skeptic. Combining research and reflection, she’s arrived at a version of hope that thrives not on certainty, but on possibility.

This week also has A Moment of Science with Dan, who talks about the evolution of morality.

Last few episodes have been heavily distorted, making it very difficult to listen to. Not sure what’s causing it.
