Breaking down ideological battle lines

Listen 00:49:30

Guests: Emile Bruneau, Dannagal Young, Kevin Arceneaux

In these increasingly polarized times, it can be difficult to find common ground and even engage civilly with people who hold different beliefs or political views.  Today, we’ll talk about the best ways to mitigate the pitfalls that occur when sharing your opinions with friends, families, or coworkers, and ways to breakdown the political divide.  We’ll be joined by EMILE BRUNEAU, research associate and lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg School of Communications, DANNAGAL YOUNG, associate professor of communications at the University of Delaware, and by KEVIN ARCENEAUX, professor of political science at Temple University.
