478: Red State Blue State

Nov 2, 2012
Everyone knows that politics is now so divided in our country that not only do the 2 sides disagree on the solutions to the country’s problems, they don’t even agree on what the problems are. It’s 2 versions of the world in collision. This week we hear from people who’ve seen this infect their personal lives. They’ve lost friends. They’ve become estranged from family members. A special pre-election episode of our show.
Special thanks: Jeff Jones, Anna Weggel, Gene Chandler, Philip Galanes, Elizabeth Garrett, Jessica Garrett Mills, Christine Hamm, Shawn Jasper, Corey Lewandowski, Terie Norelli, Robert Rowe, Amy Silver Judd and Tony Soltani.
  • Ira Glass rides around with a man in the man's hometown...a man who doesn't want us to say his name on the radio. Why? Because he's secretly a Democrat, in a small town dominated by Republicans. (5 1/2 minutes)Neighbors/NeighborhoodsPolitics
