Instead of wasting your time on the president’s press conference, a better way to spend your Sunday afternoon would be listening to On Being’s host, Krista Tippet, interview Congressman John Lewis:

We take in the extraordinary wisdom of Congressman John Lewis on what happened in Selma on Bloody Sunday and beyond — and how it might inform common life today. A rare look inside the civil rights leaders’ spiritual confrontation with themselves — and their intricate art of “love in action.”
