This should maybe go in a Board Administration forum as a resource for the debates. It's a course called "Better Angels" which aims to teach us how to have political conversations in our age of extreme polarization between left and right. I've only heard about half an hour of it so far and I don't know how good it is but it's clear it's aimed at toning down the anger and accusations across the divide.

The first twelve or so minutes are people in the class introducing themselves and I think that's interesting, why they are there and so on, but the moderator starts the teaching at around 13:00 if you want to go there. It's of course very long, and there's another Part after this one as well, bringing the total to about three hours.
