Buster Benson is the latest writer to tackle the epidemic of polarisation and breakdown of civil discourse with his new book, 'Why Are We Yelling?'.
In this conversation with Rebel Wisdom's David Fuller, they talk about how he was stunned by the election of Donald Trump, and then went on a journey to challenge his views and understand why others saw the world so differently.
