    This election has made Americans feel deeply divided around a lot of issues – it’s as if we’ve lost our ability to connect to one another. So, we decided to change gears for this week (we had planned to do a show on different kinds of evidence) and instead, we wanted to sit back, listen, and hear stories. Your stories of adversity, difficulty, and beating the odds. Because these stories connect us, and allow us to tap into all the things we have in common.
