Political speech in America today is almost all produced and paid for by people whose interests are not the same as yours and mine. If we don't talk politics with our friends and neighbors, this paid political speech might well be the only political speech they hear!
The problem is that so few of us are good at it. We don't have much practice because we were taught early on not to talk politics. Television and radio talkers model only the worst sort of two-sided dispute. Fortunately, experts in mediation, management, education, counseling, and spirituality have lots of guidance we can benefit from.
Karen McKim will review tips and techniques gleaned from these disciplines, and together we'll be able to share ideas, discuss challenges, and improve our democracy-building conversation skills.
