Year-End Show: Conflict, Patriotism and Creative Ways to Find Common Ground
Our final podcast for 2023 is the one-hundredth episode of “Let’s Find Common Ground.” We look back and include special moments from six shows during the year.
Americans disagree on many things, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Journalist and author Amanda Ripley explains why, all too often, we see conflicts that are more about scoring points than seeking resolution. Rachel Kleinfeld of the Carnegie Endowment, who studies democracy and conflict, discusses whether America’s divides could be spinning out of control. Author and Washington Post columnist Ted Johnson examines race and patriotism.
In this episode, we also share several extraordinary moments in our conversation with two women on both sides of the abortion debate and how they gained respect and understanding for each other without compromising their views on one of the most contentious issues of our time. Two faith leaders joined us to discuss religion’s role in finding common ground. And we hear a vivid example from acclaimed television journalist Judy Woodruff of the PBS NewsHour about how Washington, D.C. is much more divided than it once was.
Join us as we look back at 2023 on “Let’s Find Common Ground.”
