The political divide in the U.S. on such issues as the environment, immigration, race and the role of government is wider today than ever before, according a new study by Pew Research Center. A San Francisco project is seeking to bridge that divide and spur dialogue between those on the left and the right. We’ll hear about the project and talk to participants about their experiences connecting with people they might normally avoid.

Guests:
Chris Collins, creator, Glide’s Bridging the Divide project
Catherine Montalbo, former leftist who now identifies as conservative
Winnie Fink, member Glide Church
Tom Canaday, member, Bay Area Conservatives
