Breath of Fresh Air

Alice and Maria are at the tip top of their field, and they are showing us that in that space, even on opposite sides of the political spectrum, people can find common ground and have a conversation rooted in civility and emotional and intellectual honesty. This conversation is what we need right now, as our divided country navigates such a difficult time - of course, leave it to two women to be the voices of reason! A joy to listen to - you’ll be glad you took the time to learn from them!
