How the Heck Are We Gonna Get Along
January 15, 2021
In This Episode:
In the days after the Capitol raid (or protests depending on who you ask) Clay welcomes Sally Kohn to the podcast to see if the arc of progress is still bending towards justice, or if some drastic change is needed. With the Biden Administration kicking off next week, there might just be that chance, but in the meantime they try and break down the factors that got our country to this point, what we need next, and how we can live, let go, and maybe not hate each other.
Sally Kohn is one of the leading progressive voices in America today. A frequent guest on CNN, MSNBC and Fox News, Sally’s first book THE OPPOSITE OF HATE was published in April 2018. Sally is a popular keynote speaker at business conferences and college campuses talking about political division, hate, otherizing, diversity and identity — and how we can solve the deep problems of our past and present.
A regular columnist and commentator, Sally’s writing has appeared in the Washington Post, New York Times, New York Magazine, Time, and many other outlets. She is on the Board of Contributors for USA Today and a contributing editor to Afar magazine. Sally is also a TED Curator and her three hit TED Talks have been viewed more than 6 million times.
