Ear to the Common Ground

Can we replace contempt with compassion while being together around a meal with music?

What if we could replace contempt with compassion and spend time together sharing a meal and some music? Filmed on Cash Lane in Nashville, TN, each episode features one musical artist and a diverse cross-section of their fans who represent a broad spectrum of viewpoints. Everyone brings a dish, and they talk about the political issue, with only one rule: to listen and speak with compassion.

Ear to the Common Ground is a local public television program presented by NPT.
