Recently, I was having a conversation with close friends. They asked where I go on the Internet. So I thought share where I "surf" with a short connection.
For news, I go to:I find these sources to be the most credible with the least slant.
I do check out Fareed Zakaria's website, http://fareedzakaria.com/ as well as I try to listen to his weekly podcast.
http://www.salon.com/ (Desribed as a "smart tabloid.")
http://www.theatlantic.com/ (Literary and cultural magazine founded over 150 years ago.)
http://storylineblog.com/ (Donald Miller, Blue Like Jazz)
http://www.buzzfeed.com/ (Tracks what is viral on the Internet.)
http://positivemed.com/ (Uses social media to give ideas for a healthier lifestyle. Draws on all kinds of sources including natural medicine as well as traditional medicine, reformatted in a simple, easy to understand format.)
http://justsomething.co/ (Creativity resource.)
http://www.theonion.com/ (Good place to remind myself not to take myself too seriously!)
http://www.upworthy.com/ ("At best, things online are usually either awesome or meaningful, but everything on Upworthy.com has a little of both. Sensational and substantial. Entertaining and enlightening. Shocking and significant." David Carr, NY Times)
(Frederick Buechner, Wishful Thinking: A Theological ABC)
(John Shelby Spong, Jesus for the Non-Religious)
(Marcus Borg, The Heart of Christianity)
(You are what you eat! Do you know what you are eating?)
(Bill Moyers is a critic of big media and an investigative reporter.)
Finally, here are the podcasts I listen to via iTunes:
This American Life - http://www.thisamericanlife.
(Hosted by Ira Glass. Get informed, entertained and surprised!)
The Moth - http://themoth.org/ (Incredible storytelling. Food for the soul!)

(They explore the hidden side of everything!)
The TED Radio Hour - http://www.npr.org/programs/ted-radio-hour/ (Brings the thread of similar TED Talks, http://www.ted.com/talks, together to explore a topic.)
(A thoughtful approach to all matters spiritual. Soul food.)
Do you have suggestions? I'd love to know where you surf!
