How We Can Connect With Others Who May Not Share Our Beliefs
Domestic peace advocate Joan Blades and allsides.com CEO John Gable deliver an eye-opening talk about how we can bridge the gap created by our political beliefs and by the news media. Scary things can happen when we have narrow world views—we become more extreme and less tolerant. News media often has “filter bubbles” that affect the news we hear based on our opinions. Blades, a progressive, and Gable, a conservative, discuss Gable’s work on piercing those Internet filter bubbles, and also discuss their own friendship and how intentional listening and understanding can unify people with very different beliefs.
