-- The Harvard Negotiation & Mediation Clinical Program (HNMCP) at Harvard Law School is pleased to announce the launch of a new podcast series called Thanks for Listening.
The first episode has just gone live and focuses on politics around the Thanksgiving table—the start of six weeks of family gatherings, holiday celebrations, and potentially difficult conversation across the partisan divide and across the dinner table.Thanks for Listening
will spotlight efforts to bridge the political divide in the U.S. through dialogue and collaborative processes, profiling the important and often courageous work of individuals and organizations who are helping citizens engage with one another on challenging topics. Episodes will dive deep into such issues as: managing difficult family dynamics and relationships affected by partisan differences;
bridging the divides in Congress, the media, and in our social media spaces; training youth to move through conflict and toward civic responsibility;
embracing dialogue in the face of extremism; engaging with others on highly emotional issues; and on working to restore divided communities. We hope that through the everyday examples of ordinary and extraordinary people all over the country, listeners will find optimism that we can—and are—moving beyond partisan divides, as well as inspiration to become part of the solution.
