Tune in to the Academic Minute on National Public Radio affiliate WAMC-FM (90.3 FM in the Monadnock region) to hear a commentary by Professor Douglas Challenger on the growing interest in spiritual pilgrimages like the Camino de Santiago. Challenger explains how the Camino de Santiago functions as a bridge between the modern secular world and the spiritual world and is among the most significant examples of a trend that blends the two worlds in new ways in the 21st century. Challenger leads Franklin Pierce University’s unique Pierce on the Camino program, a semester-long international studies program.  

Produced by WAMC in Albany, N.Y., the Academic Minute appears on public radio stations across the country. The Academic Minute features researchers from colleges and universities around the world, keeping listeners abreast of what's new and exciting in the academy and of all the ways academic research contributes to solving the world's toughest problems and to serving the public good.
