Tell Me More… is a new weekly podcast that invites people with differing opinions on current political topics to explore, understand, and reflect upon each other’s positions. Join moderator Matt Lehrman for the precise opposite of a debate or argument – an earnest exploration of perspectives and possibilities.
The inaugural season of Tell Me More... is underwritten by the Mesa/East Valley MLK Committee.
