Productive Political Conversations / Syria

Monday, October 14, 2019

Television host and celebrity Ellen DeGeneres caused a stir last weekend when she and former President George W. Bush were spotted together at a Dallas Cowboys football game. DeGeneres, who is a gay woman, received criticism for associating with a president who did not support LGBT rights. She took to her own show to defend herself, saying, “I have friends who don’t think the same things as I do.” In a politically polarizing time, how do we have conversations with people who don’t share our views? We’ll talk to two women who want to show you how in their book I Think You're Wrong (But I'm Listening): A Guide to Grace-Filled Political Conversations. Later, we will check in on the recent developments in Syria. Join us at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM.

Today's Guests:

John J. McGlennon - College of William & Mary
Beth Silvers and Sarah Stewart Holland - Authors of I Think You're Wrong (But I'm Listening): A Guide to Grace-Filled Political Conversations and hosts of the Pantsuits Politics Podcast
Robert Baer - Former CIA officer
