The Habit Podcast: Governor Bill Haslam on Faithful Presence

The Habit Podcast is a series of conversations with writers about writing, hosted by Jonathan Rogers. This week, Jonathan talks with Bill Haslam, two-term governor of Tennessee, two-term mayor of Knoxville, and author of Faithful Presence: The Promise and Peril of Faith in the Public Square.

In a political climate marked by metastasizing outrage and division, Haslam found success by finding common ground and treating everyone—allies and opponents alike—with decency and respect.
