When Campaign Season Threatens Relationships

AT ODDS with family or friends over which candidate to support? Does every conversation turn into a wrestling match? Is social media even more of a minefield than usual? Are you defriending people you actually like because of their postings? If so, I highly recommend a dose of the Dear Sugars podcast “When Politics Is Personal.” It’s about speaking up, shutting up, listening well and establishing boundaries. Because at some point, campaign season will end. Hopefully our relationships will still be intact.

It’s a 40-minute podcast. Try to catch at least the first 17, covering two letters from listeners.
