It’s almost Thanksgiving, which means that many of us will find ourselves elbow to elbow with family members, some of whom may have wildly differing opinions on topics like whether cranberry sauce should be homemade or canned, and who should be president. Before things get too heated, we recommend listening to this episode. Social psychologist Jonathan Haidt will explain why there’s value in being exposed to different opinions, and blogger and entrepreneur Anil Dash talks to us about how we should treat each other despite our differences. Then, writer and theorist Andra Medea gives us five steps for defusing a Thanksgiving fight.
