In this episode, we bring you a special conversation with Sarah Stewart Holland and Beth Silvers, hosts of the “Pantsuit Politics” podcast. We invited Sarah and Beth to join us to talk about their new book, I Think You’re Wrong (But I’m Listening), and share their principles and strategies for having healthy political conversations in the midst of profound disagreements.
You’ll hear about the origins of their successful podcast, why they think it’s so important for us all to keep talking about politics, and how we can navigate difficult discussions with our family, friends, and neighbors.
