In the leadup to election day, Reckonings collaborates with Inquiring Minds on an episode about political worldview transformation in the 2016 election season. It features an interview with brilliant 'sociologist of emotion' Arlie Hochschild, along with the stories of two voters who transformed their views during this election — young voter Alex Mamach from episode #9, who's voting in his second presidential election, and longtime political insider and Republican lobbyist Bob Schneider, who's been voting for over 40 years. For more detail on the episode, an insightful writeup is on Mother Jones.
The 2016 election season has been unique in many ways — one being that it might be challenging Americans to reckon more deeply with our party affiliations, and with our political worldviews more broadly.
