"Everything is Politicized"
Hosted by Meredith Shirey & Isaiah Vallejo-Juste
Produced by Rich Hackman

Are politics making it more difficult to manage our relationships? From our personal lives to our professional lives it seems as though an increasing number of subjects are becoming more difficult to have meaningful conversation about. Is this a symptom of heightened awareness and mindfulness surrounding the needs of others, or is this the limit to our collective tolerance? How do we normalize conversations that may make us uncomfortable and possibly find acceptance in the discord?

In this episode we discuss:

  • The trouble with code words and talking Points
  • How previously non-political issues are now polarized
  • How single-mindedness impacts our relationships
  • Choosing curiosity in divisive conversations
  • Learning how to disagree
