From cooking red and blue spaghetti while hosting Democrats and Republicans around her dining room table to leading dinner events with hundreds of people from diverse political viewpoints in communities across the nation, social sculptor Philippa Hughes has been entrenched in the polarization issues that plague our country, and intent on solving them through grassroots efforts to start conversations. Her dinner series, “Looking for America,” aims to bring people together across the political divide to have frank conversations about politics and try and find common ground.

In this episode, Fred and Philippa discuss the current state of polarization nationwide, trends in political conversation that Philippa has identified through her work and how we might be able to help bridge the great political divide as communications professionals.
