    How To Tackle Trump's Lies

    How To Tackle Trump's Lies

    How do we cover the communications of a president who lies, especially when those lies can be fatal? The traditional rituals of journalism don't quite work with a president who doesn't tell the truth, so what can we do instead? Reckonings presents Infinite Lunchbox on the topic of how to tackle Trump's lies — aka *post-truth jujitsu*.

    How do people change?

    How do we change our hearts and minds? What moves us to shift our political worldviews, transcend extremism, and make other kinds of transformative change? That's the $64 million dollar question that gave birth to Reckonings. And that's the question I explore with lessons learned *from* Reckonings -- in this bonus episode with Inflection Point's Lauren Schiller.

    Biden, #MeToo, and Growing in Public

    Biden, #MeToo, and Growing in Public

    Joe Biden stands accused of sexual assault. And the Democratic Party leadership, which had been loud in its support for #MeToo, is suddenly.....silent.

    But, is it possible to support Biden's candidacy without abandoning #MeToo? Can we take Tara Reade's allegation seriously while deeming Biden a worthy candidate for president??

    Introducing Reckonings' new sister show: Infinite Lunchbox!

Amazing podcast

I don’t know how I stumbled across this podcast but I’m so glad I did. Multiple times I’ve gone into a story determined to hate someone who used to hold an opinion that I find deplorable only to come out with a wider understanding of human nature and acceptance.

A really great interview style with no judgement. Do yourself a favour and listen to it.

addictive

What a find! As a podcast addict I'm always looking to feed my habit. I have devoured the 13 available episodes and find myself selfishly resenting Stephanie Lepp's anticipated time out to have her baby. Hurry back Stephanie, I need my next hit!
