Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh rose from a precocious boy in India to a spiritual guru to tens of thousands of people worldwide. He became famous for his controversial teachings and lavish lifestyle, leading some to call him a cult leader. Building Utopia paints an immersive, unflinching portrait of Rajneesh and the people who chose to devote their lives to him -- including his top lieutenants, who fled his Rajneeshpuram commune in 1985 amid a cloud of criminal allegations. Building Utopia will capt ...
 
With occasional class, Kevin and Kim sit down each week to practice the art of conversation. They get deep, they get funny, they have little shame, and they like it that way. From interviewing addicts in recovery and telling stories of first-hand cult experiences, to discussing their day-to-day life in a way only these two can, Kevin and Kim cover it all.

He’s brought the language of mercy and redemption into American culture in recent years, growing out of his work as a lawyer to people unfairly on …

This week, in Brownstown Township, Michigan, a seemingly normal situation spins very quickly out of control, when a person begins to believe that other people may be possessed by demons... and we all know there's only one way to get rid of the demons, and that's murder! This truly bizarre tale gets even weirder with the post-murder behavior, and be…
 
This week, in Anniston, Alabama, for the first time, we are doing a second case from a town! Why? Because the case is just that wild. So wild, that it involves mysterious illnesses, suddenly appearing twin sisters, and an armless best friend. A twisted mystery that seems solved, only to end up being even more of a mystery, before a very final endin…
 
We’ve realized in 2020 that the way we’ve organized culture — from the economy to race to work — could be done radically differently. We’ve been modeling our life together on “survival of the fittest” long after science itself moved on from that. And we’re learning to see that in every sphere of life we inhabit ecosystems. Agustín Fuentes brings sp…

Harvard Business School professor Regina Herzlinger discusses how to evaluate health care innovations aimed at providing solutions for obesity in her case, “Fighting the Battle of the…
 
The Cuban American civil engineer turned writer, Richard Blanco, straddles the many ways a sense of place merges with human emotion to make home and belonging — personal and communal. The most recent — and very resonant — question he’s asked by way of poetry is: how to love a country? At Chautauqua, Krista invited him to speak and read from his boo…

This week, in Needham, Massachusetts, a mysterious death in the Boston suburbs turns out to be not as mysterious as originally thought, but is instead, much more twisted. A young man with excruciating similarities to Ted Bundy unleashes his darkest fantasies, but will insist on his innocence. What was found in his home was just disturbing & the mai…
 
Rabbi Sacks was one of the world’s deepest thinkers on religion and the challenges of modern life. He died last week after a short battle with cancer. When Krista spoke with him in 2010, he modeled a life-giving, imagination-opening faithfulness to what some might see as contradictory callings: How to be true to one’s own convictions while also hon…

Rabbi Sack…
 
This week, in Golden Valley, Arizona, a very nice gesture leads to some not very nice murder. Actually, it's vicious, nasty murders that make very little sense, and that's only the start. We can't say "why??" quite enough during this episode, as the brutality is just so out of proportion. And can a 14 year old girl really be part of a couple of adu…
 
Entrepreneur Christy Jones is trying to create a new venture to help women preserve their eggs and postpone motherhood. But what would an egg-freezing service sell – and to whom? Harvard Business School professor Debora Spar discusses the challenges of commercializing fertility in her case, “Extend Fertility: Conceiving the Market for Egg Preservat…

This week, in Fruitville, Florida, where a body is found in a drainage ditch, with its skull caved in. A peek into their life reveals a person that more people wanted dead, than liked them. At first the culprit seems clear, but the addition of extra witnesses & suspects confuse everything. This story is a crazy, wild ride, from start to finish! Alo…

This week, in Lafayette, Indiana, a terrible, hideous murder makes investigators look in the wrong place, for a minute, before the culprit becomes very obvious. A person as deranged as anyone we've ever talked about, turns out to have their own twisted belief system that causes delusions of epic proportions. The murder is absolutely crazy, and the …

How can we keep walking forward, and even find renewal along the way, in this year of things blown apart?

This week, in Sutherland, Nebraska, where right before Halloween, a quiet, rural area is sent into a panic, when a news broadcast breaks in on the regularly scheduled show to tell residents to stay in their homes, lock their doors & load their guns, because there is a maniac on the loose! It turns out to be worse than anyone could've imagined, as t…
 
An hour to sit with, and be filled. Two voices — one from the last century, one from ours — who inspire inward contemplation as an essential part of meeting the challenges in the world. Howard Thurman’s book Jesus and the Disinherited, it was said, was carried by Martin Luther King Jr. alongside the Bible and the U.S. Constitution. Thurman is remem…

This week, in Darby, Montana, a twisted plot, and two year long fear campaign end in a vicious murder, that shocks everyone around. The problem is, things aren't what they seem, or what anybody thinks. When the truth comes out, it is almost met with disbelief at exactly how disturbed a person would have to be, to do what this person did. Seriously …
 
Making voting more accessible through technology could allow more people to take part in elections. But it also poses critical downsides, if the product fails (as in the 2020 Iowa Caucuses) or if there are security failures. Harvard Business School professor Mitchell Weiss, an expert in public entrepreneurship, debates the risks, rewards, and busin…
 
After Arlie Hochschild published her book Strangers in Their Own Land: Anger and Mourning on the American Right, just before the 2016 election, it came to feel prescient.

A creator of the field of the sociology of emotion. Treating emotion seriously in our life together. “I could see what they couldn’t see but not what I couldn’t see.” Our stories as “felt” not merely factual. Caring is not the same as capitulating.

This week, in Colby, Wisconsin, a strange interweaving of marriages, and relationships leaves a man wanting revenge. What follows is one of the most brutal, heartless, and insane stories we've ever heard. A bloody mess, complete with some parts of the victim that are never found. Which parts? Well, let's just say it's two things that no man wants t…

This week, in Fairfield, Ohio, a picturesque wedding, beside a river, ends in horror when a bridesmaid sees a severed leg, washed up on shore. The investigation of the legs uncovers more than everyone bargained for, when we find out where, and how the deceased spent their last moments. The craziness that ensues is one for the books. Betrayals, befr…
 
As we celebrate the five-year anniversary of Cold Call, we welcome a special guest, Harvard Business School Dean Nitin Nohria to discuss the classic case, “Rob Parson at Morgan Stanley.” The case poses a complex dilemma: should Morgan Stanley promote a high performer who lacks interpersonal skills and brushes off company values?

Poetry rises up in human societies in times of crisis when official words fail us and we lose sight of how to find our way back to one another; how to hear each other’s voices. This week we offer a preview of the next season of our Poetry Unbound podcast, which returns on Monday, Sept. 28. Each episode takes a single poem as its center, with host P…
 
This week, in Vinton, Virginia, a smoldering home reveals a family, who all died, well before any fire started. Who could have done this? Angry drug dealers? Police conspiracy? Trusted family friend? And why? The answer to that is a little more complicated & disturbing. On top of all that, there is a walled off, secret basement tomb that needs to b…
 
Music is a source of solace and nourishment in the best of times and the hardest of times. It has been for so many of us in this year of pandemic, and Cloud Cult is on every playlist Krista makes.
