July 27, 2015 Host Emma Breacain Speaks With Author Aspen Baker About Disagreeing Nicely

barker 1

 

Sometimes it seems like we live in divisive times. Sometimes, we are just never going to agree on certain topics. Author and nonprofit founder Aspen Baker says that’s no reason we can’t be kind to each other.

Moved by her personal experience as a Christian woman who has had an abortion, Baker started the nonprofit organization Exhale, described as “a caring, nonjudgmental space for men and women to share their feelings about abortion, without choosing sides,” and wrote her book “Pro-Voice: How to Keep Listening when the World Wants a Fight.”

In today’s show, Baker shares her vision for a world in which we can discuss difficult subjects and even disagree, without getting all shouty. This may be a novel notion in a society whose media and entertainment and politics depend so much on loud conflict and strife, so it will be interesting to see how it flies. Good luck, Aspen! Good luck to us all.
