Description

Welcome to Kelly Corrigan Wonders, a place for people who like to laugh while they think and find it useful to look closely at ourselves and our weird ways in the hopes that knowing more and feeling more will help us do more and be better.  A former newspaper columnist and four time bestselling author, Kelly wonders about loads of stuff: is knowing more always good? Can we trust our gut? How does change actually happen?  We only book nice people who have a sense of humor and know things worth knowing. Each episode ends with Kelly’s shortlist of takeaways, appropriate for refrigerator doors, bulletin boards and notes to your children.

Everything Happens for a Reason? with Kate Bowler
43:59

Kelly and Kate Bowler dive into that phrase so often offered up to explain bad stuff: "everything happens for a reason." Kate is a divinity professor at Duke University and the bestselling author of three books.  She has a beloved podcast called Everything Happens.  At a time when so much feels unexplainable, Kate and Kelly wonder if this phrase offers actual comfort or does just the opposite. In this poignant and, strangely, also often hilarious, conversation, Kelly and Kate discuss the difference between finding meaning and making meaning, a life skill we'd all be well served to develop.
