Policy Matters

Mar 14, 2018

In this age of political polarization and social division, what is the best way for policy experts to communicate with the general public? How can these experts gain the trust of audiences often suspicious or polarized? How can experts best approach sensitive subjects — such as needle exchange — with social conservatives?  

In this episode, Bill Martin, the Harry and Hazel Chavanne Senior Fellow in Religion and Public Policy and director of the Baker Institute’s Drug Policy Program, discusses best practices for experts and novices to effectively communicate ideas. He also speaks about his relationship with Billy Graham, about whom he wrote the highly regarded biography, A Prophet with Honor: The Billy Graham Story.
