“Make America Relate Again”

How many Americans have, over the past year, felt disturbed and demoralized by the hateful discourse and lack of unity in our country?  I know I’ve been struggling with it for a long time, and hoping, desperately, that someone would find a way to bring understanding–or at least civility–back to political discussions.

Well, it turns out that someone has been trying to do just that!  I recently discovered the podcast “Make America Relate Again,” in which a woman travels around the country interviewing women whose political beliefs are different from her own, and searching for common ground through respectful conversations.  Some of the episodes are difficult to listen to, the the earnestness and good intentions on each side of the conversation is refreshing.

I don’t usually promote things on my blog, but this podcast is something that I think more people should hear about!
