News & Politics Podcasts >

When it comes to conversations between democrats and republicans, I’m tired of: 1) People yelling at each other 2) People not listening to each other 3) People demonizing each other. So, I decided to flip the script and make a podcast where my mom (a republican) and I (a democrat) discuss the big issues of today! We are better together as a country and it is worth it to try to really listen to each other. Because if we don’t, the human cost is far too high. Enjoy!

Abortion & the Pro-Life Agnostic

4/12/2019
More
When it comes to women’s rights one topic in America continues to be a point of tension: abortion. And people tend to fall into one of two categories: Pro-choice or Pro-life. Is abortion inherently bad? Is it inherently good? Or is it a necessary tool women need to navigate an unjust system? Today, we speak with Mary Verner. An old family friend who was raised catholic and is now agnostic. Mary hold degrees in accounting, law, and computer science, but has primarily been a stay at home mom...

Medicinal Politics

The healthcare providers I've spoken with have one thing in common: They really love helping people. And yet, considering how much healthcare providers love to help, healthcare related debt remains the leading cause of bankruptcy in the U.S. So, how does an occupation that attracts so many do-gooders become the industry that economically hurts individual Americans the most? And does it always have to be this way? Erick Skaff is a soon-to-be doctor who discusses with my mom and I some of the...

Environmentalism: Adventuring in Innovation pt. 2

*This is pt. 2 of our two part episode, "Environmentalism: Adventuring in Innovation." To get the full context of our conversation, I encourage you to listen to part one and then come back. One of the few things everyone can agree on is that we need the earth and we hope it stays around for awhile. Yet, while many people admit that we should probably drive less and not kill so many sea turtles with straws, Americans remain divided on when that should happen. There are those that think we...

One of the few things everyone can agree on is that we need the earth and we hope it stays around for awhile. Yet, while many people admit that we should probably drive less and not kill so many sea turtles with straws, Americans remain divided on when that should happen. There are those that think we should change our consumption habits now before we doom the earth to destruction And there are those that think we can give it a minute. But, despite when people think it should happen, most...

Black In America pt. 1

2/22/2019

It’s February and that means that the United States of America is officially celebrating black history month. Yet, for a country that has an entire month dedicated to celebrating its black people, America’s relationship with its melanin enriched citizens remains complicated. So, what’s it like to be a black person in a country that on the one hand celebrates you and on the other threatens you? Over the next two episodes of in Human terms, Joy Gilmer, an old family friend, black woman, and...

Shut Down for What? The Wall.

2/8/2019
More
We only have seven days left before the three week timer on the government shutdown runs out. What’s at stake? Funding to build a wall between Mexico and the United States. Though a wall may stem the flow of migrants for a time, it doesn’t address the larger problems that have made the US immigration system difficult to navigate nor the ones that have pushed migrants to flees their homelands in the first place. So, what should Americans do and how should we think about the people that want...

Take Your President to Work Day

2/1/2019
More
It can seem like an impossible request these days to ask democrats and republicans to work together. The recent government shutdown shows just how entrenched party lines can be. Where the 35 days of an inoperable government was the longest in U.S. history, President Trump has only promised a three week reprieve before the fight could get started again. So, while our politicians are the one’s haggling over this, it was the government employees, their lack of pay, work, and services to our...

Hunters vs. Madmen: Guns in America

1/18/2019
More
Few subjects have challenged almost every American’s sense of safety and freedom like that of gun control. As a country, we are divided on this. One side sees the gun and the second amendment as an American birthright to protect our liberty . And the other side counts the casualties of gun violence as too high a price so a few people can feel like cowboys. But, too often we get stuck in a binary of thinking that we only have to options: ban all guns, or arm everybody. But is there a space in...

Our Friendly Neighborhood Muslim

1/4/2019
More
For many Americans the words “Muslim” or “Islam” have negative connotations. Unfortunately, because a radical few excused their acts of terror on 9-11 and within ISIS by saying it was done for Islam, a surprising number of Americans assume that all muslims feel the same way-that they hate America. Yet, muslims have been in America for generations. They are our nurses, doctors, scientists, grocers, lawyers, soldiers, and friends and without them we wouldn’t be the nation we are today. So, can...
