“TV and Parables of Our Time:”
Religion scholar and journalist Diane Winston appreciates good television, studies it, and brings many of its creators into her religion and media classes at the University of Southern California. On the next Speaking of Faith, Krista Tippett speaks with Winston about how TV has gained in vitality as a center of storytelling in post-September 11th America. Programs like The Wire, House, Lost, and Battlestar Galactica are engaging audiences around grand questions of ethics, identity and destiny in modern life. Despite what your mother told you, TV might actually be good for you.
