Ciaran O’Connor and John Wood, Jr. welcome Terence Szuplat to the podcast. Terry was Barack Obama’s senior foreign policy speech writer and a member of the administration’s speechwriting team for all eight years of the Obama presidency. Here Terry talks his work with the Obama administration, his experience coming to a Braver Angels workshop, and the challenge of unearthing common values across the partisan divide.
We are astounded by how many members of Braver Angels showed the courage to express themselves through music—especially in these difficult and divisive times. Thank you to everyone who contributed their voice to build this movement!
