Can You Hear Their Voices? follows a morning conversation between a rich politician father and his daughter with a much different worldview. The piece doesn’t follow any real-world events for politicians, yet the tone of the argument feels familiar and I immediately identified a dynamic that many audiences would connect with. When the team discussed the piece, we compared it to a political argument at the thanksgiving table. We tried to infuse the same tensions, power imbalances, and frustrations that one might find in a discussion between stubborn members of different generations anywhere.
