S2EP6 - Cindy & Diana - The Sister Show

ECindy and Diana Kyser are sisters who only a year ago found themselves screaming at each other over politics. Cindy, a conservative, found the show through Better Angels, and she thought MARA would be a great place to work towarda better understanding of her liberal sister. This conversation is my favorite one I've ever recorded for the show. These two women found a way to take a breath and ask, "Why?" before jumping off the rails at a dissenting opinion - a lesson we could all use.
