    Fighting Unreason with Reason with Seth David Radwell American Schism

    Fighting Unreason with Reason with Seth David Radwell American Schism

    Seth David Radwell, author of American Schism: How the Two Enlightenments Hold the Secret to Healing Our Nation, which won the International Book Award for Best General Nonfiction in 2023, characterizes the forces driving the schisms in our society. With a view of the past and an analysis of what supports a healthy democracy, part of the solution, he contends, is the election system needs structural reform. There is a need for more competitive races and open primaries, focusing on issues, not just the candidates trying to be the most extreme in the primaries. We talk about: Role social media is playing to fuel these divisions Current student protests and protest movements throughout history Disinformation, censorship, revisionism, hate speech Responsibility of the business sector to help heal the divide Building resilience and conducting open, civil conversations Overcoming voter apathy and addressing the frustrated majority How moving forward and holding on to a path creates tension in societies Why he is optimistic for the future of our democracy #FightUnreasonWithReason #AmericanSchismBook #Democracy #Partisanship #Voters #VoterApathy AmericanSchismBook.com

    Advertising Opportunities on CTV and OLV for Candidates and PACs with Jess Ellis VDX.tv

    Jess Ellis, Senior Specialist, Client Partnerships, Politics at VDX.tv, illuminates the CTV and OLV landscape for political and advocacy advertising. With the increasing shift to streaming and the use of apps to download and watch videos, targeted advertising opportunities are diverse and effective for reaching specific segments of voters. The length of the ads is also shrinking as voter attention spans shorten, requiring more imaginative use of words and images. We talk about: Applying advertising strategies used in the commercial sector to political outreach and persuasion Push for CTV pre-reservations Premium CTV inventory and finding those who pay to avoid streaming ads The under-appreciated value of non-premium CTV inventory Audiences watching OLV and linear TV  #VDXtv #CTV #OLV #PoliticalAdvertising #TargetingVoters #FASTapps #VideoAdvertising VDX.tv
