Where we explore how people are reshaping small town America and how writing it off as Trump country hurts us all.
Hosted by George Goehl, To See Each Other complicates the narrative about rural Americans in our most misunderstood, and often abandoned, communities. George travels to Michigan, Iowa, New Jersey, North Carolina and Indiana to reveal how small town folks are working together in fights for everything from clean water and racial justice to immigration rights and climate change. Our belief: That when we see each other, we’ll understand that we can never give up on each other.

Hearts and minds
After growing up in (and writing off) rural Arkansas, this podcast has been convicting. It’s amazing what you can learn by listening and how hearts and minds can be changed by it. Theirs and ours.
Quick to listen slow to speak
As a black educator who grew up and taught in the small towns of coal county, people feel seen when you listen to them. Great podcast.
Timely & Authentic
It gives me hope that organizers are engaging rural America, we can’t afford to give up on each other. This podcast shows us new ideas and creative solutions that involve building coalitions by actually listening and respecting each other.
