It’s About the Questions
I am thoroughly enjoying the interviews and it’s because of the questions Lulu asks! Her questions show she’s listening and when she has to ask a crucial but necessary question she does so in a respectful…reflective way to propel understanding about the topic. She’s fair and there’s no rhetoric or hidden agenda…believe me…I’m suspicious of that! I listen to learn about her questioning method and in return I learn something.
As someone who is relatively apolitical, I was hopeful that this would be an honest exploration into different beliefs and perspectives. After listening to the first two episodes and hearing the obvious sustain that Lulu had for Will as opposed to her awe/empathy clearly expressed for Merritt, I’m over it. Congrats on producing another left wing propaganda show!
