Engaging The Other Side on LGBTQ Rights
< 1 day ago
This is a show all about reaching across the aisle and engaging with people that you might think could never change their mind. So, it's a real pleasure to talk to someone who has flipped a seemingly impossible stance in a public figure. I absolutely want to ask them about how they pulled it off, and what we can learn from that and/or emulate in our own battles.Remember a few years ago when the owner of Chick-fil-A made some anti-gay remarks and it lead to a national boycott of the fast food chain? Well, did you ever wonder why you stopped hearing about that guy? CEO Dan Cathy experienced a personal shift in beliefs, and it wasn’t just about losing money. It was about a friendship he made with LGBTQ activist Shane Windmeyer. Here is my conversation with Shane Windmeyer about changing a mind by making a friend.

Show is great but 'helping' in commercials is not
The show itself is really interesting. I really like the part at the end where Jason gives you rebuttals to Republican talking points. The 2 episodes I've heard were both thought-provoking. However, he has his wife do the commercials - she's fine, commercials are fine (ya gotta support yourself) but his "flirting"/and CONSTANT interrupting and acting like a 14 year old boy or Al Franken "being funny" are enough to make me bail on the show. Jason, butt out! Let her do the commercials - you are SO not funny.

This podcast is so important. This is something I never knew I needed in my life. Each podcast is better than the last but each previous doesn't feel diminished. Very well done, and truth be told, your delivery of the commercials is hilarious to me because you remind me of my own husband and me. I, too, went to school for political science, and have been working in food service for nearly a decade for life reasons(husband, kids, starting a business). I am going to be starting a political education blog to use MY platform soon. I am currently laying the groundwork and am hoping to go live by the end of January and I have been asked to run for local school board in April 2018. Thank you so much, Mr. (and Mrs.) Kander for both your service and this podcast. Can't wait to keep listening!
