Tim resumes the discussion with Stephanie Bennett (PhD) on her new book, “Silence, Civility, and Sanity: Hope for Humanity in a Digital Age.” They take a deeper look at silence as a set of practices for counteracting unhealthy and uncivil discourse. Dr. Bennett unpacks two types of silence - contemplative silence and ontological silence - to help us reclaim civil communication and healthy public conversation. They round out the conversation discussing Dr. Bennett's trilogy of novels, “Within the Walls,” where she employs fiction to explore the future of digital media and relational sustainability. This is part 2 of a 2-part discussion with Dr. Stephanie Bennett on silence and civility.

“There's people wandering around in packs, not thinking for themselves, seized by this mob mentality trying to spread their disease and destroy society. And you probably think, as I do, that you're the good guy in the zombie apocalypse movie, and all this hate and polarization, it's being propagated by the other people, because we're Brad Pitt, right?” —Dr. Robb Willer, Polarization and Social Change Lab at Stanford University When it comes to navigating our deepening ideological divide in America, what if we're not so much the hero fighting the forces of evil—instead we're accidentally acting just a little too much like “foot soldiers in the army of the undead,” wonders our special guest, Dr. Robb Willer. Robb has been working on understanding the moral underpinnings of this accelerating anger—and his research shows that we're speaking different languages. Dr. Willer, professor of psychology and sociology at Stanford University and Director of the Polarization and Social Change Lab (and movie buff), shares his highly-relatable, user-friendly and scientifically-grounded advice on how we might improve the quality of our political conversations—and possibly ditch a few zombies along the way. Kristin Hansen, Executive Director of Civic Health Project (and one of our favorite civic superheroes) joins us to facilitate the conversation. Dr. Robb Willer is a Professor of Sociology, Psychology (by courtesy), and Organizational Behavior (by courtesy) and the Director of the Polarization and Social Change Lab at Stanford University. He studies politics, morality, cooperation, and status. Learn more about Dr. Willer's work here, see below for some of Dr. Willer's articles. Kristin Hansen, Executive Director of Civic Health Project, is a national leader in the field of bridge building, having taken a “civic sabbatical” from her tech career to help save American democracy (and we're so glad she has). She's devoted to accelerating the efforts of academics and practitioners who seek to reduce polarization and improve civil discourse in our citizenry, politics and media. Previously, she's held senior executive roles at Intel, IBM and multiple start-up software companies.

But first we break down the Supreme Court's ruling on an important stay application from Yeshiva University.
Welcome to another episode of School PR Drive Time, a podcast produced by NCSPRA. In today's episode, we will explore the topic of conversational civility in crisis. As school communicators, we know the importance of conveying a message accurately and being able to address any feedback, questions, or concerns from our stakeholders. But, as we'll discuss today, this process has become broken in many ways and for many reasons. Joining me is Sarah Broberg, APR, President, SB Corporate Consultancy, and the Founding President of PRSA of Western North Carolina.

Corporate culture is all the rage now, meaning it is an often used topic to signal commitment, sensitivity to issues of employee concern, and an awareness of governance trends. In practice, as we all know, culture is not just about words -- it is about action. As the often repeated phrase goes -- talk is cheap. In this Corporate Culture Roundup Episode, Michael Volkov examines some culture-related issues involving: Culture + Action Steps; Civility in the Workplace and What Happens when HR and Compliance are Disconnected.
Guest Host Richard Cloutier chats with Maxwell Cameron, Professor in the Department of Political Science and School of Public Policy and Global Affairs at UBC

To the Founding Fathers it was free libraries. To the 19th century rationalist philosophers it was a system of public schools. Today it's access to the internet. Since its beginnings, Americans have believed that if facts and information were available to all, a democratic utopia would prevail. But missing from these well-intentioned efforts, says author and journalist David McRaney, is the awareness that people's opinions are unrelated to their knowledge and intelligence. In fact, he explains, the better educated we become, the better we are at rationalizing what we already believe. Listen as the author of How Minds Change speaks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about why it's so hard to change someone's mind, the best way to make it happen (if you absolutely must), and why teens are hard-wired not to take good advice from older people even if they are actually wiser.
Stephanie Bennett (PhD) joins Tim to discuss her new book, “Silence, Civility, and Sanity: Hope for Humanity in a Digital Age.” In this episode, they discuss features of the fallout from digital culture on our communication, including the dangers of immediacy, the prevalence of noise, and other dynamics in our speech that prevent or erode healthy, meaningful, and civil dialogue. They begin to explore practices involving silence, including a media fast, as one antidote. This is part 1 of a 2-part discussion with Dr. Stephanie Bennett on silence and civility.

About the Podcast The Stevens Group has been presenting the PR Masters Series Podcast for more than two years now. This series is part of the ongoing partnership between The Stevens Group and CommPRO to bring to PR, digital/interactive and marketing communications agencies the wisdom of those who have reached the top of the PR profession. Today's special guest is Robert L. Dilenschneider, Founder and Principal of The Dilenschneider Group. About Our Guest Robert L. Dilenschneider formed The Dilenschneider Group in October, 1991. Headquartered in New York and Chicago, the Firm provides strategic advice and counsel to Fortune 500 companies and leading families and individuals around the world, with experience in fields ranging from mergers and acquisitions and crisis communications to marketing, government affairs and international media. Prior to forming his own firm, Mr. Dilenschneider served as president and chief executive officer of Hill and Knowlton, Inc. from 1986 to 1991, tripling that Firm's revenues to nearly $200 million and delivering more than $30 million in profit. Mr. Dilenschneider was with that organization for nearly 25 years. Mr. Dilenschneider started in public relations in 1967 in New York, shortly after receiving an M.A. in journalism from Ohio State University, and a B.A. from the University of Notre Dame. Experienced in a number of communications disciplines, Mr. Dilenschneider is frequently called upon by the media to provide commentary and strategic public relations insights on major news stories. He has counseled major corporations, professional groups, trade associations and educational institutions, and has assisted clients in dealings with regulatory agencies, labor unions, and consumer groups, among others. In 2001 he established The Borromean Lecture at St. Charles Preparatory School of Columbus, Ohio. The annual event attracts a nationally renowned speaker to talk on the topic of morals and ethics in business and government. In 2012 The Dilenschneider Group established the Civility in America Lecture Series, which features many of the nation's leading thinkers from a wide variety of professions and provides a perspective on what must be done to restore civility in our Country.

In the year prior to his assassination, the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King isolated himself in a house in Jamaica where he wrote what was to become his final book. King said he felt at home there: “In Jamaica I feel like a human being.” “One day, here in America,” said King, “I hope that we will see this and we will become one big family of Americans.” 50 years later, it is an aching American tragedy that we find ourselves with issues of race, arguably, as emotional, divisive and consequential as in King's time. The culmination of King's thinking in Jamaica ultimately became the book “Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community?” In it he offers this stark warning: “Together we must learn to live together as brothers or together we will be forced to perish as fools.” Our failure to “live together as brothers” has gone to seed in what increasingly feels like the chaos King foreshadowed. But right beside his tragic premonition of our future is also his uncanny prescription of a path forward. To King the answer lies, at least in part, with community. At the Village Square, we've long believed that the revival of American geographic community across differences of opinion and demographics is ultimately the only thing that can save us. No matter how profound our disagreement runs, we're still neighbors whose lives intersect. As we consider how to move forward together, we are inspired by insights from Neil Phillips' Race to Truth talks for which he won The Nantucket Project Audience Award multiple times. Neil is an educator, entrepreneur, public speaker, coach and youth advocate. Neil founded Visible Men Acadamy, a charter school for at-risk boys of color. He is currently serving as the first ever Chief Diversity Officer for The Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Also featured in this program: Chuck Hobbs joins us for a cameo appearance to share a story about growing up in a racially divided town. Chuck is a criminal defense and civil rights attorney who has tried many high-profile cases, including two jury trials that aired on Court TV. Chuck is also a freelance writer and political commentator, appearing on CNN, Fox News, E! and other major networks. Funding for this program was provided through a grant from Florida Humanities with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Nothing good comes of HateI've made the statement so many times on this podcast, but I'm reminded daily that nothing good comes of hate. There is no greater reminder in my mind than the speech given this past week, and other things said recently by the current President of the United States. For clarification, THE DTH PODCAST IS NOT POLITICAL. I want to make sure that is clear, but Hate is Hate and I'll point it out when I see it.People often make the statement, “words matter”. When labels are placed on large groups of people, and then those people are classified as a threat, bad things are bound to happen. Hate, no matter the context, is not healthy. The fact that our current President knows nothing about so many of what he calls “right-wingers” and “ultra-MAGA extremists”, yet boldly spews his hatred for them, made me think of a conversation I recently had with my friend Daryl Davis.The Daryl Davis DiscussionIn episode 99 of the DTH podcast, Daryl Davis and I discuss the question, “How can you hate me when you don't even know me?”. We discuss this question in terms of race. I believe the question is valid for people of all differences. Please check out the replay of this great conversation. Be one of those that asks questions and gets to know those with whom you differ and disagree. Don't buy the lies and ad-hominem attacks of those who would prefer to keep us divided.What have you done today to make your life a better life? What have you done today to make the world a better place? The world is a better place if we are better people, and that begins with each of us leading a better life. Be kind to one another, be grateful for everything you've got, and make each and every day the day that you want it to be!Please follow The Derate The Hate podcast on Facebook, MeWe, Instagram, Twitter .

Will opens with MSNBC's castigation of Dr's Oz's campaign over comments about his opponent's recent stroke. Was it over the top, or tame, compared with Joe and Mika's historical treatment of, say, Trump? State Senator Sam Givhan joins Will in the second half of the show to talk about the future of a dubious Left-wing voter registration outfit embraced by 31 states, including Alabama.
Welcome to Season Three of Behind the Lines: The Houston Lawyer Podcast!This episode highlights the new HBA Presidents goals for the 2022-2023 Bar Year.First, Behind the Lines host Anna Archer interviews HBA President Chris Popov, who introduces listeners to his goals for the bar year. This sets the scene for the remainder of the episode as well as some of the underlying themes for Season Three of the podcast. The three segments each address one of Popov's goals. Popov also discusses how to get the most out of your HBA membership. Segment One: Elevating Civility in LitigationThis segment consists of two interviews conducted by new interviewers for the podcast - Mark Yablon and Anietie Akpan. Mark interviews Fifth Circuit Judge Jennifer Walker Elrod, and Anietie interviews Harris County Felony Associate Judge Tiffany Hill. Both judges address why Popov's goal of elevating civil discourse is important in the litigation context and provide advice for lawyers on how to elevate civil discourse in their practices. Segment Two: Overcoming the Impact of Vicarious TraumaIn this segment, Anna Archer interviews Alicia Freeman, who is the TLAP Clinical Professional for Texas Lawyer Assistance Program at the State Bar of Texas, about how vicarious trauma impacts lawyers and what to do about it. This segment is inspired by Popov's goal of increasing wellness without our profession. Ms. Freeman prepared a PowerPoint presentation to accompany this interview that provides significant additional information. The PowerPoint can be found on The Houston Lawyer Committee's page of the hba.org website. Segment Three: HLRS: One of the Best Kept Secrets of the BarIn our final segment, Anna Archer interviews Colin Pogge, the President of the Board of the Houston Lawyer Referral Association (HLRS) about how this organization partners with the HBA, what services it provides to Houstonians in need of legal assistance, and the ways in which being a member of HLRS is beneficial to Houston lawyers. We are looking forward to providing Houston lawyers and the Houston community with more content about elevating civil discourse, attorney wellness, and the HBA's partnerships with its ancillary organization during this season, as well as our usual fantastic content that focuses on the theme of each issue of the HBA's The Houston Lawyer magazine. Be sure to check out the interesting articles available in the July/August issue, available at www.thehoustonlawyer.com, or in your mailbox if you are an HBA member.The biographies of our guests can be found on The Houston Lawyer's HBA webpage, hba.org/thehoustonlawyer.

On July 20, President Dallin H Oaks, first counselor in the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, offered a keynote address at the 2022 Notre Dame Religious Liberty Summit — calling for a global effort to “defend and advance” religious freedom. President Oaks' address followed other historic remarks on religious freedom and the United States Constitution. This episode of the Church News podcast features Judge Thomas B. Griffith, a former federal judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. In addition, Judge Griffith served as Senate legal counsel and then as general counsel for Brigham Young University. A Latter-day Saint, he talks about religious liberty, the powerful possibilities of the United States Constitution and civilly engaging in an increasingly polarized political climate. The Church News Podcast is a weekly podcast that invites listeners to make a journey of connection with members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints across the globe. Host Sarah Jane Weaver, reporter and editor for The Church News for a quarter-century, shares a unique view of the stories, events, and most important people who form this international faith. With each episode, listeners are asked to embark on a journey to learn from one another and ponder, “What do I know now?” because of the experience.

This past week in "Biden's America" the left's idea of civility was on full display as Democrats up and down the East Coast called Republicans "haters" and “semi-fascists.” With one governor telling Republicans to get out of her state. Record numbers of migrants have been arrested by U.S. Border Patrol agents at the U.S. southern border states of Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, and California. Border agents expect over two million arrests by the end of the government's fiscal year, which ends September 30th. Richard V. Battle joined me to discuss that and his soon-to-be-released new book, Made in America, by AmeriCANS, not AmeriCANTS. Plus I had my usual "Sunday Afternoon Conversation" with Ron Edwards, which will take more than one broadcast to air this time.Richard V.

Why don't liberals seem to care about moral behavior and the moral communities that support it? Why don't conservatives seem to care about rampant public corruption at the heart of our political system? If we care about doing the right thing, can't we care about both? There is perhaps nowhere in our civic debate where the conversation has grown so calcified as the one about morality. We've long since stopped any form of real communication, instead hurling accusations at each other across what seems to be an impossible – and ever-widening – divide. But if you take a fresh look at the best case each side makes, they each have a real argument, in fact we think each sees an “asteroid” coming our way – with the problem getting bigger over time and the longer we ignore it. And until we cross the partisan divide and realize that team effort can solve both problems – as we would behave if they were real asteroids we must deflect to protect life on earth, we're stuck in a do-loop of failure to communicate. Joining us for this program are: Lucy Morgan, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and Dr. Bill Shiell, President of Northern Seminary and former pastor at First Baptist Church. Facilitated by Steve Seibert. Funding for this program was provided through a grant from Florida Humanities with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Civility, humility, kindness, sharing, and modesty are some of the things we learned in Kindergarten but in our world today these words have seemingly lost their meaning and value. Let's examine ancient and modern civilizations and why we are just beginning to learn how to build community. Sermon delivered by Rev. John T. Crestwell, Jr. Music by Betsy Kranning.
When George Washington was a teenager, he wanted to make a good impression on his elders. Good manners were important to him. That's what Washington's rules of civility and decent behavior reflect. The rules are about focusing on other people, instead of just thinking of our own narrow self-interest. In addition, they're about being willing to make small sacrifices for the sake of living in a community and getting along well with others.

Join us as podcast host Corey Nathan of Talkin' Politics and Religion without Killin' Each Other flips the switch by interviewing The Village Square's Liz Joyner and Vanessa Rowse about how we make pigs fly. We were fast friends with Corey right from the start because of our shared goal to have constructive and respectful conversations about those taboo topics of politics and religion. Corey started TP&R to take back some of the airspace from the screamers who feed off our divisions. He says politics and religion are too important to be left only to the extremes, so he hosts engaging, provocative and fun conversations about the most pressing issues of our times. We (obviously) love his mission, we love the show, and we love hanging out with Corey, so we were thrilled when he invited us on the show. Now we're sharing that talk with you because we think you'll love Corey and his podcast too. From Corey, about this episode: "We get into all kinds of important, timely topics including: how we're all living in this "high energy environment"; the "us vs. them dynamic" and what the solution is; the value of actually getting together in person; how the Village Square is able to get people of diverse views in the same venue together; how the first casualty in this environment is nuance; and being played by the "conflict entrepreneurs."" Shout out to The Democracy Group for introducing us to Corey Nathan. The Democracy group is a network of podcasts working to understand what's broken in our democracy and how we can all work together to fix it.
Scott Paradis, Dr. Heather Williamson, and I discuss focusing on civility in discourse as a way to help build a less violent society, and ultimately to help prevent mass violence. Part 7 of 9. Thanks for joining me for this episode! I'm a Houston- based attorney, run an HR Consulting company called Claremont Management Group, and am a tenured professor at the University of St. Thomas. I've also written several non-fiction political commentary books: Bad Deal for America (2022) explores the Vegas-style corruption running rampant in Washington DC, while The Decline of America: 100 Years of Leadership Failures (2018) analyzes – and grades – the leadership qualities of the past 100 years of U.S. presidents. You can find my books on Amazon, and me on social media (Twitter @DSchein1, LinkedIn @DavidSchein, Facebook @AuthorDavidSchein, YouTube user/ClaremontManagement). I'd love to hear from you!

Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me. That was perhaps your first interaction with Stoicism. This ancient philosophy is making a strong comeback in the 21st century. And for good reason. Sometimes we try to figure things out on our own or reinvent the wheel. But there are things that work and don't require reinvention. We just have to learn them, implement them, and live by them. Become a better man today by learning the ancient mind control philosophy of Stoicism. In this episode, we learn why we should be less preoccupied by what happens in other people's mind and more in understanding what is happening in ours. Why we shouldn't become so distressed with things not being how we wish they were, and instead accept the world as it is. Connect with us!

We talk with William Martin, who has been called the "king of the historical thriller," about his novelistic biography of George Washington, Citizen Washington. What made Washington the indispensable man? We plumb the character of Washington, his theatrical sense, and the Rules of Civility that shaped his life. We also discuss his "American Experience" episode, "George Washington: The Man Who would Not be King," and the passing of our mutual friend David McCullough, and about some of William Martin's other books, including his latest, December '41.
We discuss the importance of civility and how it can be achieved through building better relationships. Then, look at a documentary that explores how three strangers in Milwaukee became connected through a weekend of gun violence. Plus, learn about Escuela Verde Newline Community Cafe, a place for young people to learn life skills.
“There's just so much rich material in Hollywood during the 1940s—which is where much of the book is set—there is just sort of an endless rabbit hole you can go down. And of course, one of the problems with writing a book about the movie industry is that sitting around watching movies technically counts as research.” We still think about Anthony Marra's incredible debut, A Constellation of Vital Phenomena, years after first reading. His newest novel, Mercury Pictures Presents, is an epic story of family secrets, love and war, loyalty and reinvention that cuts between Hollywood and Mussolini's Italy in the 1930s and 40s—and it's the August B&N Book Club pick. Anthony joins us on the show to talk about mapping stories, the landscape of exile and imprisonment, the importance of humor, research and rewrites and snappy dialogue, his literary inspirations (including Zadie Smith and David Mitchell), and much more with Poured Over's host, Miwa Messer. And we end this episode with TBR Topoff book reviews from Marc and Becky. Featured Books (episode): Mercury Pictures Presents by Anthony Marra A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra The Tsar of Love and Techno by Anthony Marra Los Angeles in the 1930s: The WPA Guide to the City of Angels by Federal Writers Project of the Works Progress Administration Rules of Civility by Amor Towles Featured Books (TBR Topoff): West of Sunset by Stewart O'Nan A Touch of Stardust by Kate Alcott Poured Over is produced and hosted by Miwa Messer and mixed by Harry Liang.

On this episode of the Hospitality Leaders podcast, I'm joined by Sheffield Hale, President and CEO of the Atlanta History Center. In recent years it seems that public discourse has become more uncivil, especially after two very stressful years of a pandemic. Sheffield often has an uncomfortably close look at this incivility, as Atlanta itself is a city rich in complex and often divisive history. Placing that sensitive subject matter into a hospitality setting, where difficult guests can be routine, would seem to be a recipe for disaster. Sheffield, however, uses his position to create the opportunity to return to a more civil culture. With strict rules for his guests about how to engage the staff and each other, buy-in from his team, and a robust support system for employees who are put in difficult situations, the Atlanta History Center is a place where the best parts of education and hospitality are allowed to shine. Sheffield makes himself available for constant feedback from his frontline workers, and has a zero-tolerance policy for guests who break the agreed-upon “Rules of Civility.” With such a well-constructed framework for dealing with difficult situations, Sheffield and his team are often able to stop incivility before it begins.

We all know the country is deeply fractured right now, and that's especially true in our politics. There is vitriol, bitter partisanship and an expectation that in order to succeed you need to beat up on your opponent. So is it possible to fight for your beliefs, remain civil and still win elections? On this episode of How To!, we brought together two politicians from either side of the aisle who are living proof that we can practice politics with humanity. Utah Governor Spencer Cox and Vermont State Senator Becca Balint share how they resist negativity, meaningfully work with the other side, and stick to their values even when they are forced to stand up to their own party.

Happy Friday, guys! Today I'm reacting to this week's top stories, starting with “Morton's” trending #2 on Twitter nationally from angry backlash after the restaurant asked for people harassing Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh to be civil. Plus Macy Gray bows to the mob, NPR complains about the WNBA wage gap, and more.
Notes: 1) I am certain that the two named individuals in this clip have NEVER read a single one of my papers and/or books. And yet, in an act of grotesque intellectual dishonesty, they feel emboldened to simply posit that it is all "nonsense." Their ignorant arrogance is truly boundless. Zero ethics. Zero integrity. Zero intellectual curiosity. They are consumed by professional envy. They represent all that is currently wrong in academia including an ability to engage ideas in a rational and dispassionate manner. 2) At the 5:10 mark, I meant to say "the effects of conspicuous consumption on testosterone" (and not vice versa) even though testosterone is likely both an antecedent and an outcome measure in such situations! _______________________________________ If you appreciate my work and would like to support it: https://subscribestar.com/the-saad-truth https://patreon.com/GadSaad https://paypal.me/GadSaad _______________________________________ This clip was posted earlier today (July 7, 2022) on my YouTube channel as THE SAAD TRUTH_1425: https://youtu.be/s1lzRpRbOsk _______________________________________ The Parasitic Mind: How Infectious Ideas Are Killing Common Sense (paperback edition) was released on October 5, 2021.
