"Let's Talk About Hard Things" By Anna Sale
Anna Sale is the creator and host of "Death, Sex & Money," the award-winning podcast from WNYC Studios, where she’s been doing interviews about “the things we think about a lot and need to talk about more” since 2014. Before that, she covered politics for public radio for years.
In her new book "Let’s Talk About Hard Things," Sale uses the best of what she’s learned from her podcast to reveal that when we have the courage to talk about hard things, we learn about ourselves, others, and the world that we make together. Diving into five of the most fraught conversation topics — death, sex, money, family, and identity — she moves between memoir, snapshots of a variety of Americans opening up about their lives, and expert opinions to show why having tough conversations is important and how to do them in a thoughtful and generous way.
