David Beckemeyer on the Overcoming the Divide Podcast

I made an appearance on the Overcoming the Divide podcast. The podcast is about mending political and societal fractures through conversation, civil discourse, & empathy. Episodes published bi-weekly on Tuesdays.

Together, we navigate the tightrope of the modern political landscape, where labels are quick to stick, and accusations fly for those not conforming to the stereotypical ‘lefty’ or ‘hardcore trumper’ moulds.

We dissect the impact of media, psychological fallacies, and the glaring lack of communication between folks with differing opinions in creating a polarized environment. We explore how this moralization of the political landscape obstructs productive debate and compromise, the very essence of democracy and a representative republic.
