In today’s episode we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • How to talk about politics in a productive manner with friends, family and other relationships.
  • The tools to have a constructive political debate that will not end in shouting matches.
  • Navigating the tough conversations you might have with those of opposing political views.
  • Moving forward in a positive direction no matter what your political affiliation.
  • And much more!
