One Small Step: Finding places to talk respectfully about politics

Sonia Mehrmand
Nathan and Tony

KVPR is one of six public radio stations nationwide chosen to partner this year with the personal history project StoryCorps on its One Small Step initiative. The idea is to bring together strangers with different political views to have personal conversations in an attempt to find common ground, or at least some shared humanity.

When was the last time you talked politics? Where were you? Who were you with?

In this One Small Step conversation, Nathan and Tony talk about their limited opportunities to have respectful conversations about important issues. With COVID-19 limiting our ability to gather, and the taboos around talking politics at work and with family, where can we seek these interactions?
