On the first day of UPR’s Spring Pledge Drive Tom Williams and co-host USU Communications Studies Assistant Professor Jason Gilmore will present parts of several recent Access Utah interviews: We’ll hear some of our listeners expressing opposing viewpoints. StoryCorps founder David Isay will urge us to try to overcome our differences by truly listening to each other. And we’ll talk about UPR’s upcoming partnership with StoryCorps in their One Small Step initiative, which invites two strangers to share life stories across a political divide. Finally, we'll hear from Richard Saunders on the way contemporary contexts inform our understanding of history.
