Come together

This is a much needed political conversation. Common ground can be found. Thanks eTown!

Ambitious attempt to find common ground

This sounds like a very promising new podcast!

The first episode introduced issues including: ranked-choice voting, judicial nominations, politics in tribes, political and geographic sorting, and civility, among other issues.

I would like to see future episodes tackle topics more in depth, and include guests from farther afield than mostly Boulder.
Of course there is just the one introductory episode extant today.

It feels ambitious in this present time to attempt a podcast that finds understanding and agreement on how to make our political and societal structure more democratic and effective, “purple” in the language of this podcast. Yet actualizing positive change in society is even more ambitious, and very much needed! I’ll be listening in!
