Tapestry exists to go deep. We investigate the messy, complicated, and sometimes absurd nature of life, through the lenses of psychology, philosophy, religion and spirituality.

Tapestry is your radio/audio home for all the big questions: Why are we here? What does it mean to live a good life? Will the Leafs make the playoffs in your lifetime?

We mix it up with professionals who think big thoughts for a living - and ordinary people just trying to make sense of the world.

Tapestry is hosted by Mary Hynes, and produced by Erin Noel and Rosie Fernandez.

And, of course, on the podcast whenever you please. 

You can also hear every episode by streaming the audio from our website.


Mary Hynes is the host of Tapestry, CBC Radio's weekly programme about spirituality and the search for meaning. 

Before finding religion (the beat), Hynes worked on radio and television shows about news, books and sports.  She has covered three Olympic Games, reported from 23 countries, and is a former sports reporter for The Globe and Mail.

Mary Hynes lives in Toronto  with her family and her Fender basses.
