KCUR and StoryCorps Present: How Do We Talk About This? Conversations Across Values and Beliefs
Are you fed up with the state of political conversations and debates? Are you looking for ways to connect with people who have a totally different worldview?
KCUR and StoryCorps can help you navigate the minefield of talking across values and beliefs. We'll explore whether civil discourse actually helps us, and what strategies we can use to achieve it.
We’ll hear from experts and people who’ve actually succeeded in having this kind of conversation. Finally, using all we’ve learned, we’ll witness two politicians connect.
