Village SquareCast presents “High Conflict” with Amanda Ripley

The Village Square

“New York Times bestselling author and award-winning investigative journalist Amanda Ripley joins Village SquareCast to offer up a brilliant and frame-shifting understanding of conflict — from the most distant political conflict to the most intimately personal conflict in our closest relationships — from her most recent book “High Conflict: Why We Get Trapped and How We Get Out.” We think this book (and this conversation) will change your life — it did ours. For instance, did you know that in high conflict situations, almost anything you do intuitively will be the wrong thing? Lucky for us Amanda sleuths out powerful and doable ways to extricate ourselves.

Village SquareCast is the podcast your mother warned you about. We talk politics, religion and race — across color, creed and ideology — and we do it like the partners in democracy that we really ought to be.”
