Finding hope in political journalism

"Politics, of course, is crap. But politics has consistently been crap throughout the last couple of centures and yet here we are in the greatest period of global peace, enrichment, and innovation in human history." Katherine Mangu-Ward
Whether she's defending texting on the toilet (a lot of you are probably doing it, too!) or extolling the virtues of the Cat in the Hat's approach to parenting, Katherine Mangu-Ward has a unique way of looking at the world, and a "no holds barred" style of sharing her perspective.

As editor in chief of Reason Magazine, she's the perfect guest for a discussion about political journalism, fake news, and reasons for hope.

I Think You're Wrong (But I'm Listening)

Finding it tough to talk with friends and family who disagree with your political positions? Join us on October 16th to meet two close friends who have overcome differences without compromising their principles. They've even written a book about how they do it!

As hosts of "Pantsuit Politics" (named one of the best podcasts of 2017 by The Guardian), Sarah Stewart Holland and Beth Silvers offer deep political conversations with "no shouting, no insults, and plenty of nuance."

Register now for this live online interview and discussion (10/16 at 8 pm EDT), where we'll unpack a better way of discussing politics with family, friends, and neighbors.
