KHOL continues with our StoryCorps initiative to connect Jackson Hole locals together for one-on-one conversations. One Small Step brings people with different beliefs into the recording studio to talk and discover common ground. This week we share with you a conversation between two twenty-something women: 25-year-old Emma Leither and 24-year-old Toni Walsh.
Both women grew up Catholic but with different social and political ideologies. Leither pushed back on her conservative upbringing and now identifies as liberal, and Walsh — who is also the partner of a KHOL staff member — said she now leans conservative after being raised in a liberal community.
Listen above for a snippet of their conversation or to the full conversation on StoryCorps’ website.
StoryCorps’ One Small Step and the Radio Station Hubs are made possible by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
We are hosting a free public listening event on Nov 1 at the Center for the Arts.
