Almost every Monday on my morning run, you will find me listening to some of my favorite podcasts. One of the first podcasts I always listen to during my Monday routine is Polilogue, a show about the substance and style of the Sunday morning news shows. The show is hosted by Brendan Steidle and Naomi Soto, and they really know their stuff.
This past Monday, April 4th, Polilogue premiered an incredibly important new series which asks the question, “how do you solve gun violence when legislation fails?”
Polilogue’s new series on Solving Guns began out of frustration. Why couldn’t the United States meaningfully reduce gun violence? If passing laws kept failing—couldn’t we try something else? Aren’t there other ideas? Solving Guns is an effort to understand and present new ideas to solve gun violence—without legislation.
I reached out to Brendan Steidle after I heard the first episode of this new series and asked if I could have permission to share it with my listeners, in hopes that we can get it into as many ears as possible.
Brendan graciously agreed to allow me to share the episode with you, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to share it with you here as a bonus episode of Voices In My Head.
My dear listeners, I have three things I am asking you to do:
Listen to this important episode with an open mind.
My thanks again to Brendan and Naomi for allowing me to share this show with my audience, and congratulations on the birth of their second child. Together, I hope we can make the world a more peaceful place for our children to grow and thrive.
