The Value of Non-Partisanship

In this episode

What do the number 70 and nonpartisanship have in common? For Pew, the combination is a special one, marking our 70th year of serving the public by using nonpartisan data to make a difference. To commemorate the anniversary, we invited Pew’s president and CEO, Rebecca Rimel, into the studio to share her thoughts on the value of nonpartisanship and civil dialogue. Then we traveled to Indiana—the crossroads of America—to hear from two veteran lawmakers who represented the state for a combined 70 years: former Representative Lee Hamilton, a Democrat, and former Senator Richard Lugar, a Republican. They talk with host Dan LeDuc about what is needed to find middle ground today.
