by | Dec 1, 2017 | All Posts, Dealing With Polarization, Dialogue

“We’re living in a time of intense ideological division, and it often feels impossible to bridge the gap. But can we afford not to? This hour, TED speakers explore how to communicate across the divide. Guests include social media activist Megan Phelps-Roper, social psychologist Robb Willer, former Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Støre, public radio host Celeste Headlee, and Rabbi Jonathan Sacks.”

Simply put, this podcast is an excellent illustration of how dialogue can and should function in today’s society. With thought provoking discussion and practical ideas this wonderful episode provides a framework of dialogue that anyone can implement into their lives. It is more certain now than ever that dialogue is imperative. It certainly isn’t always easy but creating healthy dialogue is the first step in reaching tangible solutions to the worlds big problems. Give it a listen and we would love to hear your feedback. We hope that you enjoy. Last but not least, thank you for the wonderful people at NPR for creating this excellent podcast, we are so happy to share it!
