About Us

The Podcast

Over the past few years we have become frustrated by the lack of discussion between people who disagree - real life shouldn't be like Twitter. So we decided to launch this podcast with a focus on having conversations about difficult topics while fostering an environment to create productive dialogue and understand different perspectives. We have guests with viewpoints from all over the political spectrum, sometimes we research specific news topics, and sometimes we'll use a current news event to launch into a deeper discussion about a broader issue.

The mission is to have healthy dialogue with people of all backgrounds while promoting open discussions between people of differing viewpoints to search for common ground. We believe that what we need more of now is open, honest, and challenging dialogue between people of different backgrounds. We hope you enjoy the show!
