In this conversation, we explore our own experience about how we learned to talk about politics . . . or to avoid it. We are sharing stories about what has happened around our political conversations and consider the impact this has on our relationships with friends and family. Each of us has a different story about how we have learned to navigate these possibly hostile conversations. This isn’t a conversation focused on issues, but rather a discovery of how we decide who to relate to and at what depth based on our knowledge of political views.
