You know how leftovers can sometimes be the best bit of a gutsy meal? Well, it’s the same with a big plate of podcast - there’s always rich pickings in the editing process, and they’re just too good not to share. We simply had to make a delicious bite-sized episode for international lawyer Amanda Brill, because she had so much to talk about. In this bitesize episode, Amanda discusses everything, from the experience of having a gun pointed at her temple, and then becoming engaged to a card-carrying, gun-owning NRA member; what it was like for her as a young Republican interning in the Clinton White House and her subsequent shift to the Democrats - plus how to talk to Trump supporters. Her stories of loving people across our respective tribes were a calming way for us to close out 2020 and look forward to a brighter year ahead.
