The podcast is written and narrated by Boston interfaith leader Sarbpreet Singh. He was joined at the event by noted journalist and filmmaker Beena Sarwar where they read an excerpt of the podcast’s script and discussed its importance to interfaith understanding. The podcast weaves together art, history, music, philosophy, spirituality, and storytelling in order to share the stories and history of the Sikh faith tradition. Season one, consisting of ten episodes, starts with the coming of Guru Nanak, the first Sikh Guru, and ends with the martyrdom of Guru Arjan, the fifth, and is now available on iTunes, Stitcher, and other podcast feeds. After an extended question and answer session, the large crowd was then fed a hot meal in a communal langar, or traditional Sikh vegetarian meal which is offered in community, free of charge. This summary was written by a Pluralism Project staff member who attended the event.
