Anyone who has paid any attention to the news, political environment, or the presidential race of 2016 recently will know exactly how partisan the dialogue in the world of wedge issues has become. Despite the fact that more people than ever before are identifying as moderates, the political environment continues to grow increasingly hostile. This phenomenon is in large part due to the increasing number of wedge issues, like the validity of abortion, the regulation of guns, and the existence of God, that divide political parties, communities, and even friendships. As a result of just how divisive these issues are, the majority of people avoid talking about them, furthering the partisanship of the nation as there is little to no debate over these matters that is understanding and considerate of both sides. Today an up-and-coming podcast named Hinge is aiming to set an example for others by having these considerate debates between two friends, a pastor and an atheist, who hold radically different opinions.
