Blessed Are the Unsatisfied by Amy Simpson, Free for CAPC Members
Living unsatisfied is the reality we know deep down and no longer need to cover with a shiny veneer.
From travel intelligence and prophets to pets and knolling—we’ve covered quite the array of topics on Persuasion this year. Even with all that talking, there are plenty of things we didn’t say in 2017. The year was full of turmoil and unrest. White supremacy protests, political scandals, the #metoo movement, terrorist attacks, tragedies at home and abroad… these topics didn’t get slated for an episode this past year, and you may have wondered why.
In this episode of Persuasion, Erin Straza and Hannah Anderson talk about the things they didn’t talk about in 2017 to shed light on their recording decisions. Recent articles have raised the valid question about women guarding their platforms by avoiding controversial or unsettling conversation. Is it possible—even for women—to have meaningful, sometimes heated, dialogue about tough topics? Erin and Hannah believe it is, but wisdom is needed for handling sensitive topics. Learn answers to all this and more, and then continue the conversation on Twitter @PersuasionCAPC or in the CAPC members-only community on Facebook. Be sure to answer our question of the day: What topics would you like to hear on Persuasion in 2018?
