The 1A Radio Show on “Civility”, Thought Bubbles, and more

I recently discovered the 1A radio show.

A Description from NPR:

“Hosted by Joshua Johnson, inspired by the First Amendment, 1A champions America’s right to speak freely. News with those who make the news, great guests and topical debate. Weekday conversation framed in ways to make you think, share and engage.”

Yesterday’s broadcast entitled Politically speaking: Talking to Each Other With Civility featured an interesting conversation about engaging with others in today’s post-election climate.

At around the 12 minute mark they start talking about the idea of “thought bubbles”. It looks like the show has some pretty interesting topics coming up, including a topic called “What is Whiteness” that I’m curious to hear how the conversation goes. I’m still doing my own research on the host and the show, but yesterday’s episode gave me pause to think about the state of today’s political climate, and the differences between debate and dialogue.
