Where are the great American political conversations happening?
There is much talk in the US about much polarisation and hate, and I am surfacing people in media who are seeking a way out.
This list will track the better, greater and more empathetic conversations between left and right after the 2016 elections. It is in reverse chronological order. At the very bottom is A frank conversation with a white nationalist that RevealNews.org published two days after the elections verdict of 8th November 2016. I will try to keep it updated as the months roll by.
