It’s A Question Of Balance ® radio show balances the intellectual with the creative, exploring whether we have more in common than divides us through thought-provoking conversations – out and about with people on the street on different topics, and in the studio with inspiring guests from the arts. Balance is not a compromise. Balance is truth distilled from many places creating cohesive understanding.

Should-we-all-be-one-religion-ruth-copland

We discuss our Question That Matters this week ‘Should we all be one religion?’ There is so much violence in the world that centers around the clashing of religions. Would it be simpler if we were all one religion? If so, which one? Why do some people feel the need for everyone to share their religious views? Is there still a place for organized religion in the modern world? Local people share their views with Ruth on the show’s Out and About feature.

I interview stand-up comedian, comedy writer and author Laurie Kilmartin. Laurie is an Emmy-nominated writer for CONAN on TBS, and, as a stand-up comedian, has appeared on CONAN, Last Comic Standing, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Comedy Central. As an author she has published Permission Slips: Every Woman’s Guide to Giving Herself a Break and more recently a book, Sh*tty Mom, which is a New York Times best-seller and has given hope to mothers everywhere who are doing their best but can’t be perfect. She has also produced a full-length, live stand-up comedy album that takes on sex, politics, and religion in one hilarious fell swoop, recorded live at the Punch Line in San Francisco.

“It’s A Question of Balance ® so rare among radio talk shows, lets its subjects breathe. With her discursive style and pleasingly eccentric range of curiosity, host Ruth Copland each week treats her listeners to two hours of Whole Brain Radio.
