Our guests this week, Rainn Wilson and Brent Plate, discuss the need for spirituality and how to bring it into our lives. Steve and Rainn discuss Rainn's experience finding religion again and his hopes for his son's experience with the sacred. Rainn Wilson is an Emmy nominated and SAG award-winning actor, writer, and producer. Wilson's book, "Soul Boom: Why We Need a Spiritual Revolution," explores the benefits spirituality gives us in creating solutions for an increasingly challenging world. Wilson co-founded SoulPancake, a digital media company designed to celebrate humanity and champion creativity. Heather chats with Brent about the physical objects that create spiritual experiences. Professor Rodriguez-Plate has traveled the world studying ways that people practice and/or fight against religious traditions. Convinced that religion has less to do with belief than with bodies, Rodriguez-Plate investigates the ways people connect with physical objects through sense perception: the things we see, hear, smell, taste, and touch are what gives us our spiritual dimension, ideas captured in "A History of Religion in 5½ Objects: Bringing the Spiritual to Its Senses".
