Talking Politics and Keeping Your Friends To bring up politics is to risk stepping on the third rail of American relationships. But there's a way to talk politics without starting world war three. It's a fact that most of us feel talking politics is best left to the pundits. But how can we not talk about something so important? And how can we talk politics with friends and still have friends? Thursday on The Sound of Ideas we'll talk with experts who have ideas on how to detoxify our political discussions and keep our personal relationships intact. Join host Mike McIntyre at 9:00 a.m. on 90.3.
