Produced for Doha Debates
Many of the world's biggest issues are also the most polarizing so in the second season of Doha Debates' podcast Course Correction, host Nelufar Hedayat is trying to open her mind — to people she disagrees with. Many of the world's biggest issues are also the most polarizing, so in each episode, Hedayat explores one of those topics and talks to people who challenge her views. She’ll talk to activists, authors, scientists and even a former head of state, looking for advice on how to be more inclusive of people whose views she opposes. And in each episode, she'll work to identify solutions and bridge gaps on divisive issues like reparations and race, COVID policy and the limits of free speech.
