Attempting Conversations With People Who Make You Mad


These may be trying times for some people, with our political divisions and all.  But it's a boom time for people suggesting ways for us to narrow the divisions. 

Philosopher Peter Boghossian from Portland State University wades into these waters with a book he co-wrote with James Lindsay, How to Have Impossible Conversations: A Very Practical Guide

Climate change?  Gun control?  Politicians?  The authors say these and more can be discussed, if the discussion is approached carefully.  They offer a guide in the book, and Peter Boghossian visits with some details.
