You need little more evidence these days that our country is badly divided than to toggle back and forth between Fox News and MSNBC – two perspectives on the same day’s events that might be coming from two different universes. We have become a nation of tribes. We didn’t set out on Clear+Vivid to explore this divide, but in our conversations about connecting and communicating, the topic kept coming up. On this podcast, Alan Alda has talked to people as diverse as politicians, comedians, and psychologists. From each guest, we've heard not only possible reasons for the current tribalism, but also possible solutions. This episode explores some of Alan's favorite guest insights about we can overcome this "Us" vs. "Them" mentality of tribalism.
