I had the chance to talk to the guys at the Winner Gets Nothing Podcast about a range of topics. In this episode, we discussed, politics, religion, and much more. One of the main things we talked about is how to engage in discussions. I think this is a huge part of what’s hurting our society today.
We dove into a range of different topics. But, I think the whole time we were flowing on a lot of different topics. Hopefully, this episode serves as a guide for those of you who want to have good, productive conversations.

The guys at the WGN Podcast are not sitting idly by, but are engaging in the conversation. And, that’s one of the reasons I wanted to talk to them. If you’re interested in politics, religion, libertarianism, conspiracies and more, you’ll like this podcast for sure.
How To Engage in Discussions
First, keep a level head. Don’t get angry or upset if people disagree. In the moment you can simply agree to disagree and think about things and think about it later.
Secondly, you should find common ground and seek to understand the other person. Instead of looking to win the argument or undermine the other person’s argument, look for ways to be productive. Finding common ground and building on that can be great. And, learning a new perspective can be really helpful as well.
Lastly, I recommend you talk about things you and the other person are knowledgeable on and passionate about. If you can do that, you have a way to move forward on the conversation and can get into the flow of it. I think we had that flow going, which is why I wanted to share this conversation with you.
