Please Tell Us More About You!

The Tell Me More... podcast brings together people holding a variety of insights, experiences, and opinions for discussions that show how people can disagree without being disagreeable - even about today's most divisive political topics and social issues.

A "courageous conversation" is neither a formal debate nor a Jerry Springer Show free-for-all.  It's a respectful, insightful, and sometimes vulnerable discussion in which people who disagree make the effort to really understand each other's positions.

If you'd enjoy participating in such a discussion, we are eager to hear from you.  Upon completing this application, Matt Lehrman (producer & host) will be in touch to schedule a brief interview to discuss your interest and answer any questions.

The podcast is recorded via Zoom and once an episode's participants are selected, we'll schedule a mutually convenient time to record.
