The Tibet Connection

GroupAccount image

Each month, we fea­ture engag­ing inter­views, news sto­ries, pro­files, doc­u­men­taries and help­ful insights. We seek out notable and intrigu­ing guests, includ­ing film­mak­ers, authors, thinkers, artists, musi­cians, and com­men­ta­tors, who con­nect the issues fac­ing today’s world with the Tibetan expe­ri­ence and pro­vide an infor­ma­tive and engag­ing forum for dis­cus­sion. We hope that our pro­gram helps lis­ten­ers to under­stand the unique expe­ri­ence and legacy of Tibet and to pro­vide a con­duit between Tibet and the rest of the world.

A grow­ing inter­est in the pol­i­tics, phi­los­o­phy and cul­ture of Tibet plus a lack of Tibet-related pro­gram­ming led a group of peo­ple, in May 2006, to launch a monthly one-hour radio pro­gram devoted to things Tibetan.
