Jeanne Safer, author of the new book “I Love You, but I Hate Your Politics,” joins the podcast to discuss how we can maintain relationships with friends and family despite political differences.

Safer, a psychologist, should know: while liberal herself, she has long been married to National Review senior editor Rick Brookhiser.

“Never start any conversation with, ‘how could you possibly think…'” Safer explains, “even if you’re not shouting. Or ‘did you hear the obnoxious tweet or the stupid thing this person said?’ These are not conversation starters, they are insults. And your partner, the person you care about, will interpret them that way.”

We also cover:
• The Heritage Foundation’s Nick Loris dispels some environmental myths.
• We share letters about last week’s episode, “She Survived China’s Forced Labor Camp. Now She’s Urging Americans to Reject Socialism.”
• We tell the story of how one man created a very simple way for prison inmates to stay connected with their families during incarceration.

    One of my closest friends is a hardcore liberal whose main political religion is global warming, and her favorite television personality is Rachel Maddow. We have, though, much in common as far as our family and community responsibilities, books, movies, etc. We can talk for hours about many subjects, but the minute it gets political we just can’t go there. Period.
