Disagreeing without being Disagreeable (0:00:00) With the holidays coming up, it means so are all those uncomfortable political debates with your relatives. And this year it’s even more intense with the presidential election in our midst! Are you the aggressive one at the dinner table or the one who tends to keep their head down pretending not to hear the commotion? Lucky for us, we get to talk to Emily Taylor next about how to have healthy discussions, despite the disagreements you might have with your great uncle Bob. Emily is a certified mediator and assistant director of the Center for Peace and Conflict Resolution at the BYU Law School. She is the author of “Raising Mediators: How Smart Parents Use Mediation to Transform Sibling Conflict and Empower their Children”. Preparing for the Election (0:20:16) Politics can be overwhelming, especially now. The presidential election is coming up, but it’s not the only thing we’re voting on. Voting can be scary, I always feel like I’m not informed enough to vote for everything on the ballot. But not knowing should not stop us from voting. There are a ways that we can prepare a little more for the election. Here to discuss some of these ways is Political Science Professor Jeremy Pope. Scary Movies (0:52:48) It’s that time of month again... Time to stay in, pop some popcorn and watch a scary movie! I love scary movies, but I do have to say, sometimes I do get a little tired of watching the same 5 movies every October. I want to refresh my watchlist this October. Here to help us do that, is horror movie expert, Kendall Phillips, to share his recommendations with us. Mini Book Club: Halloween Books (1:09:57) Rachel Wadham , of BYU Radio’s Worlds Awaiting , talks with Lisa and Richie about the best Halloween themed books to read this month.
