An IQ2US Thanksgiving Tradition
Tuesday, November 21, 2017
Just in time for Thanksgiving, our latest podcast offers a guide to taking a reasoned look across the across the aisle – and your own holiday table.
Last year, our host John Donvan sat down with Ken Stern, the former National Public Radio CEO, to discuss his book "Republican Like Me: How I Left the Liberal Bubble and Learned to Love the Right, " which chronicles this lifelong liberal's journey through conservative communities and ideas. Ken sat in on Steve Bannon’s radio show, rallied with the Tea Party, spent Sundays in evangelical churches, and went boar hunting in Texas. The result? A new respect for the conservatives he once demonized and optimism for the state of American partisan politics.
Join our host and moderator in revisiting this conversation a year later. In light of contentious midterm elections and political partisanship in Washington and beyond, are you willing to step outside of your own ideological bubble? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
