The Impeachment Trial and Political Atmosphere Today

Feb 3, 2020

How did we get to this state of political and social division in our country, and what do we as Americans agree on? How is it that Americans can be presented with the same set of facts yet view them so differently? Where do we find evidence, locally and at the state level, that we can work in a non partisan way and move forward despite our different views? 

On The Point, we talk with Democratic State Representative Dylan Fernandes and former Barnstable County Commissioner Leo Cakounes about the state of our nation, and take listener calls. Mindy Todd and Steve Junker host.

 

We also hear from John Dickson, History and Social Studies Teacher at Monomoy Public Schools and director of the Global Studies program. He’s in Iowa with his students to observe the caucus. We talk about the trip and hear how John Dickson is using the impeachment as a teachable moment with his class.
