In times of intense polarization across our country, we need people who have the courage and the ingenuity to get people to come into the same room who may have very different points of view and yet can be inspired to find a new direction together. Our guest in this episode, Nick Forster, years ago found an innovative way to do just that. We invite you to hear his story.

He is a founding member of the world renowned bluegrass band, Hot Rize, one of the most influential bands in bluegrass history.
