In this episode, Brittany talks to GSR contributor Tracy Barnett, who's reporting from Panama on an eco-spiritual retreat called Web of Life. Run by the Maryknoll Sisters, the retreat weaves together science and spirituality to explore the interconnectedness of all life. Peter Feuerherd and Dan Morris-Young join the show to talk about The Field Hospital, NCR's blog series on parish life in the U.S. and Canada.
