Impolite conversations on race, politics, sex, money and religion

    Listen

    Guests: Cora Daniels and John L. Jackson

    In their new book, Impolite Conversations, journalist CORA DANIELS and Penn professor JOHN L. JACKSON, challenge the conventional wisdom that says there are certain topics that should be avoided in social settings. Instead, they say, it’s healthy and informative to talk about those taboo subjects like race, politics, sex, money and religion. In a series of honest and through-provoking essays, the authors fearlessly share their opinions on a range of issues and challenge their readers to do the same. Two life-long friends, Daniels is a journalist and book author and Jackson is a cultural anthropologist at the University of Pennsylvania.
