Synopsis

Multifaithful is a podcast about the impact of religious diversity on our religious and spiritual identities. We will explore how people of different religious traditions have experienced spiritual growth through their relationships with people from other faiths, and how multifaith dialogue and engagement is an essential part of life in the 21st century. Whether it be in academics, politics, literature or sports, grappling with religion, spirituality and multifaith experiences will continue to shape who are as individuals and as a society.
