Bridging Divide: Iowa Civility Workshop
American democracy is in crisis and politics have become weaponized with name calling and personal attacks. Trust in national institutions and the media is at an all-time low. Congress and The Supreme Court are much more likely than in the past to cast predictable party-line votes. As a nation we are failing to make creative solutions, based on compromise.This episode is the first of three to report on local efforts that push back against the toxic impact of tribalization and political polarization. "This is not just a shake our fists at what Donald Trump has brought to our national discourse," Kathie Obradovich, Opinion editor at The Des Moines Register, tells us. "It goes deeper to our ability to speak to and understand each other.""People who used to put party politics aside and work for common interests are just fewer and fewer. The number of prominent moderates in Iowa politics I can count on one hand."In this episode, we report on the work of Revive Civility Iowa, a project of the National Institute of Civil Discourse, to bring a series of tools that help people overcome the degradation of our public dialogue. A two-hour workshop in Des Moines was organized by The Ray Center at Drake University, which works to improve civility and promote ethical leadership. More than two-thirds of Americans feel our incivility is a crisis. "How Do We Fix It?" looks at how neighbors, family members and local communities are responding in positive ways.This episode is partially funded by "Renewing Democracy", an initiative of Solutions Journalism Network.

Episode 7 - Protest to Power
The trio returns to Des Moines to co-host the Revolution Iowa Annual State Convention After Party in partnership with Iowa CCI Action Fund. The group chats with CCI organizer Jack Reardon about the healthcare crisis in America and Eli Shepherd of Iowa Student Action about emerging national student-led movements on college campuses. The featured guest for the episode is Bree Carlson, Deputy Director for People’s Action and a powerful voice in the progressive movement. Their conversation explores topics from the difference between activism and advocacy to the purpose of power. The episode concludes with a shrewd critique of the Obama Administration and its impact on the progressive movement, analyzing both its successes and failures, while also considering the constraints of race and obstructionism

130 - Casey Anthony - Free and Guilty?
Liar, liar, pants on fire. Wow! I have never read about someone who told lies - big lies - more often and consistently than Casey Anthony. On July 5, 2011, a Florida jury found Casey Anthony “not guilty” of counts one through three regarding first-degree murder, aggravated manslaughter of a child, and aggravated child abuse. However, many people, including myself, think she definitely killed her young daughter. Why do I think that she for sure, 100% did it?
