"You Are Not So Smart" podcast - making better moral arguments

I've been listening to a number of podcasts for a while, and one of my favorite recent additions is called "You Are Not So Smart".  I'm still finding out what it's about a little more with each episode, but the most recent one I listened to was especially relevant to the current times and issues.

From their summary of the episode:  "In this divisive and polarized era how do you bridge the political divide between left and right? How do you persuade the people on the other side to see things your way?  New research by sociologist Robb Willer and psychologist Matthew Feinberg suggests that the answer is in learning how to cross something they call the empathy gap."
