SHE with Jordan Lee Dooley
In a society where polarizing arguments have become increasingly more common, along with heated political division and clashes on social media, it sure can feel overwhelming to try and have a respectful conversation about today’s issues.
And that’s not the only struggle.
Add to the mix that different news sources often report from vastly different perspectives and biases, it can feel like a huge struggle to even get the facts about an issue in the first place.
So, how can we overcome our own biases, work to hear both sides of the issue, investigate the real facts beneath political division, and have respectful conversations with the aim to understand rather than to win an argument?
In this episode, Jordan sets out to answer those questions with guest Sharon McMahon, the woman often referred to as “America’s Government Teacher.”
If you have ever felt intimidated by the growing prevalence of polarizing views, misinformation, and political division, then make sure you tune in to this episode to learn:
- What biases are and how to spot them in ourselves and in the media
- Ways to determine which sources are reputable
- The role experts play (and don’t play) in the distribution of information
- The importance of our role in holding the media accountable
- How to have conversations with people you disagree with, in person and on social media
