Weathering the Age of Rage

Katelyn and Roxy are joined by political analyst Kirsten Powers as they ask: can you stay centered in an age of extremes?


Pick up the phone. Scroll, scroll, scroll. Angry tweet. Delete. Repeat.

The name of the game in public discourse these days seems to be “outrage.” The polarized language from pulpit to podium to facebook post underlines just how divided our society has become. Is it possible to stay centered in an age of extremes?

On this episode, Katelyn and Roxy are joined by political analyst Kirsten Powers. No stranger to conflict and not one to shy away from a debate, Kirsten began to wonder if constant immersion in what was becoming an increasingly toxic discourse was maybe beginning to poison her soul. She talks about the steps she’s taken to form healthy habits, while still engaging in the issues that matter.

Plus, a pop quiz straight out of high school debate team.
