CARING FOR AN AGING PARENT - "A lot of people in caregiving situations ask, 'Why is God doing this to me? Where is God in the midst of all this?' and they really struggle with spiritual matters," says Rev. Kate Bryant. Her church started a special ministry to support parental caregivers. We also talk to Jane Gross, author of "A Bittersweet Season: Caring for Our Aging Parents - and Ourselves." (originally broadcast April 13, 2012).
RABBI ADIN STEINSALTZ - "The idea of the Talmud is that you are allowed to ask questions about everything," says Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz, who calls the Talmud "the central pillar of Jewish culture" and "a vast book encouraging you to ask questions." Translating the Talmud into modern Hebrew and English has been his life's work. (originally broadcast April 27, 2012).
DANA GREENE ON POET DENISE LEVERTOV - Watch our interview at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC with biographer Dana Greene, author of Denise Levertov: A Poet's Life. Levertov (1923-1997) was a poet of doubt and faith, Christianity and Judaism, war and peace, protest, lament, nature, spirituality, and more.

THE SISTINE CHAPEL - After 500 years, the ceiling of the Vatican's Sistine Chapel, which Michelangelo spent four years painting, remains as important a piece of art as has ever been created. As Lucky Severson reports, until then God had not generally been depicted as human, or male, and art historians may still disagree: did God create man in his own image, or was it the other way around?
LIFE OF PI - Opening nationwide this week, this film adaptation of the best-selling book explores the phenomenon of being open to faith, as experienced by a young boy stranded at sea with a man-eating tiger. Director Ang Lee tells Deborah Potter: "To believe in God you have to go through suffering and pain - you have to be in awe."
JEWISH COMMUNITY FOOD STAMP CHALLENGE - As Thanksgiving approaches, Rabbi Leonard Gordon of Congregation Mishkan Tefila in Chestnut Hill, MA describes this effort of rabbis across the country undertaking the challenge of living for a week on the food stamp budget of $31.50.
