Religions have spent millennia developing and honing toolkits for extracting meaning, morality, wisdom, and inspiration from a central sacred text. What new possibilities might there be for these ancient toolkits today—especially for the increasing population of people who have no connection to a sacred text? One winsome answer to this question comes from the widely-popular podcast: Harry Potter and the Sacred Text.
MIT Addir Interfaith is proud to host a behind-the-scenes look at this hit podcast with an event featuring Harvard-Divinity-trained co-host Vanessa Zoltan and producer Ariana Nedelman. This five-star rated podcast reached #2 on the iTunes chart the first summer it was released and has spawned book clubs across the country and internationally. Through the podcast, a million people per month find a vehicle for reflection, personal growth, and expanded moral imagination amongst a community galvanized by the motto that “reading fiction doesn’t help us escape the world, it helps us to live in it.”
