Who We Are
Welcome to “How I See It,” a weekly podcast that “works to counter cultural polarization through thoughtful conversations.” Our co-hosts, Mark Pratt and Justin Sternberg are curious individuals who are passionate about engaging in deep and meaningful conversations about hard subjects.
Our co-hosts, Mark Pratt and Justin Sternberg, both possess a strong desire to explore complex topics and challenge our own perspectives, as well as those of our guests and listeners. We believe that open and honest dialogue is crucial for personal growth and for fostering understanding and empathy within our communities.
Throughout our episodes, we tackle a wide range of subjects, from current events and social issues to personal experiences and philosophical concepts. Our goal is to provide a safe and respectful space for diverse voices to be heard and for us to learn from each other’s perspectives.
We invite you to join us on this journey of discovery and exploration as we delve into the challenging and often uncomfortable topics that we all face in our lives. Thank you for tuning in to “How I See It.”
