I have been playing with the idea of starting a podcast for a while, and now I’m scheduling interviews and working on putting together enough episodes for a first season.
The podcast will be called The Space Between. In any conversation, any relationship, there is a space between us, something that we can’t ever completely understand. Other people are a mystery. Sometimes what separates us is obvious and seems huge, language, culture, religion, politics, etc. Sometimes it is more subtle like personality or preferences. No matter what we all need to learn how to have conversations that cross over these spaces between us, not to agree on everything or even find common ground, but to try and understand and empathize with the other side and to learn how to have difficult conversations.
So I hope to have guests that are different than me in some way so we can have conversations that demonstrate better ways to have these conversations. I also hope that we can learn about some practical tips and ideas that will make it easier to have these difficult conversations. I don’t want anyone to think I can have these conversations because I am somehow special or unique. My hope is that as I learn how to have these conversations you can also learn how to do this in your own life too.
If you have ideas for guests or feedback on the podcast you can email firstname.lastname@example.org. Stay tuned for more news about launch dates and ways you can get involved.
