Conflict changes the way we see each other, how we communicate with each other, and how we organize. It can be a powerful rallying point for transformation or a place of relational stagnation.
Join our hosts, Jeremy and Gerry, Whole-System Designers and Transformation Catalysts, as they dialogue with their guests about facing and addressing social issues that divide us. The purpose of this podcast is not to resolve conflict but to work with others to transform conflict into tools for changing our relationships, perspectives, and sociopolitical structures.
