Podcast #15: Math Teacher Laura Hawkins


If you care about our divided country, but don’t quite know how to have conversations across political difference, you’ll like today’s episode with Laura Hawkins.

My friend and former colleague, Laura is a Math teacher at the Urban School in San Francisco. In this episode, we talk about Andrew Sullivan’s recent article, “Can Our Democracy Survive Tribalism?

In our current political climate, what’s the best course of action? Do we try to listen to people who disagree with us, in an effort toward understanding and reconciliation? Or will that process simply lead to more pain?

There’s plenty of good stuff in here, so take a listen! And if you’d like, feel free to leave a comment with your thoughts!
