Your Hosts: Friends Who Disagree
Jean (R) and Robert (D) have known each other, and have disagreed about politics, since they were college classmates; for almost 30 years, they’ve disagreed without being disagreeable.
In that time Jean worked as a top Republican communicator, including cabinet-level speechwriting in the George W. Bush administration, while Robert built a career as a journalist and then liberal columnist.
Today, they want to add their sharp-but-civil discourse to a national political conversation where name-calling too often passes for intelligent political discussion.
Tired of the yelling and insults? Just trying to understand each side’s point of view?
This week, Robert and Jean embark on a bipartisan search for clarity on COVID-19 data and the political and class divisions underlying the pandemic.
