Alexandra Hudson: The Soul of Civility

The King welcomes Alexandra Hudson, the author of The Soul of Civility: Timeless Principles to Heal Society and Ourselves. Alexandra is an award-winning journalist, creator of “Storytelling and the Human Condition” for Wondrium (formerly known as The Great Courses), and an adjunct faculty member at the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy. She’s also the founder of Civic Renaissance, an intellectual community and newsletter dedicated to personal and cultural renewal.

We talk about how civility is different from politeness, its effectiveness in making change, and in improving your own life. Then Jon wraps up the news of the week, including the latest from Israel and the Hamas insurrection on Capitol Hill.
