My new Braver Way podcast is here!

It’s here! 😱

My brand new podcast, A Braver Way, is out in the world with three new episodes — yes, THREE — razor-focused on the podcast’s whole mission: equipping you with the tools you need to bridge the political divide in your everyday lives and confront the barriers in your way.

Got a coffee break? Lunch break? Commute? Pick one of the below episodes, take a listen, and please please please let me know what you think! ♥️

What could possibly be so funny about the big political fights I get into with my “way on the other side” parents? Watch the rather personal third episode to find out. :)

Finding ‘A Braver Way’ to talk politics

Episode 1: How did Lincoln do it? LISTEN: Apple | Spotify Mónica talks to historian Ron C. White to find out how our nation’s most renowned bridge builder disagreed fully and freely with those around him while leading the nation through the Civil War. Taking a closer look at private notes Lincoln wrote to himself, the two explore everything from how to approach deep moral disagreements to what to do with your anger at the injustices you see. Episode 2: How do you bridge a legacy of pain? LISTEN: Apple | Spotify Mónica talks to two friends whose lives changed in profound ways when they discovered that the family of one had owned the family of the other as slaves. Exploring our racial and religious divides as well as our political ones, their conversation takes on tough questions about how we honor past and future in our shared story, and the role repentance and forgiveness can play in relationships burdened by pain. Episode 3: How can you talk politics in a divided family? LISTEN: Apple | Spotify In this special episode, Mónica — a liberal — joins the two people she’s argued with most — her conservative parents — for a candid conversation about one family’s struggles with a political divide that cut right through their own home. Looking back on the biggest disagreements that tested their relationships, like Moni’s pro-choice stance on abortion and her parents’ votes for Donald Trump, they open up about the strategies that keep them talking.
