How do we change our hearts and minds?

What moves us to shift our political worldviews, transcend extremism, and bring our values into the workplace?

Reckonings is an exploration of how we look in the mirror, and grow from what we see.

Guests have included a deeply conservative Congressman who made a dramatic shift on climate change, a white supremacist who managed to transcend a life of hate, and a national reporter whose crisis of conscience led to a new understanding of objectivity.
