The Things I Think About Podcast
114 – How To Listen To and Understand The Other Side
Today, I spoke to Jihan Varsicco who publishes The Flipside, a political newsletter that presents left and right opinion on social and political issues. Some of the questions I asked him were:
- What is the Flipside?
- What was the inspiration behind it?
- Where is their true bipartisanship these days?
- Are we mostly divided on political lines or ideological lines? (I mean, everyone is not hard left and hard right.)
- What do you do with people who treat emotions as facts?
- Is the culture at The Flipside toxic with so many opposing views?
- How can we unite the country in such divisive times?
- What would you say is the country’s most divisive issue right now?
- What are some of your most popular newsletter issues?
