The Spiritual Edge Radio Stories

The Spiritual Edge is a multimedia and podcast project from KALW Public Radio exploring the shifting, dynamic nature of the religion and spirituality. We offer stories of people and communities who balance a commitment to long-held beliefs with an active modern life. Often an emotional subject, the lens of religion offers profound insight into the world’s cultures. It plays a role in many of the world’s conflicts, art, health and the way all humans search for meaning.

The Spiritual Edge began as a radio series on KALW in 2014 and is now a podcast. This page offers an archive of our radio stories.

Visit The Spiritual Edge Podcast page. Season 1 of the podcast is Sacred Steps. We'll take you around the world to meet some remarkable people who lean on their values and faith as they challenge the status quo. Episodes drop Sundays, starting May 23, 2021.

    At Folsom State Prison, Wendell El-Amin James gravitated towards incarcerated Muslims out of a need for protection. But ultimately his conversion restructured his life to one of education and purpose. Uncuffed presents a special episode from our friends at KALW podcast The Spiritual Edge.
