Headline: Can America bridge its racial divide?
Nov 20, 2017 This week on Flyover, a crash course on how to have a meaningful conversation about race. At a time when America is increasingly divided by party affiliations, geography and gender, we'll discuss how we can have meaningful conversations about one of the nation's most polarizing issues: race.

Flyover: How do military veterans fit into American identity?
Nov 12, 2017 Support for our troops is a common refrain during campaign season and after a national crisis. But how often do Americans think about vets on the days in between?

This week on Flyover, as we reflect on Veteran's Day weekend, we're talking about where veterans fit into America's national identity.

Flyover: How do immigrants fit into the 'American Dream?'
Nov 12, 2017 In the wake of Tuesday’s deadly attack in New York City, President Trump criticized the diversity visa lottery program that allowed the suspect to live in the U.S. as a green card holder.Trump’s stance on immigration is one of the messages that appealed to many voters in last year’s presidential election.But one year out from the election there’s a lot we still don’t know about his platform: Will there be a wall along our border with Mexico? Are Trump’s immigrations bans legal? This week on Flyover, we’re asking if America’s immigration system is one of our greatest strengths weaknesses.Give us your thoughts by commenting here

Flyover: Is American identity shaped by the view from abroad?
Oct 29, 2017 President Trump won his office on the promise to always put “America first,” enticing the many people who have personally experienced the downsides of globalization to support him. But not all Americans were keen on pulling back our influence on the global community. This week on Flyover, we’re talking about how America — and Americans — are seen abroad. Does it matter how other nations look at America? Is our identity at home at all shaped by the gaze from abroad?
Flyover: American faith and the rise of the 'nones'

Flyover: National gun control debate heats up, again
Oct 8, 2017 Fifty-nine people were killed and well over 500 were wounded when a man showered bullets into a crowd of concertgoers from the 32nd floor of a nearby hotel. While the number of people affected by this shooting is unprecedented, mass shootings in America are not. The New York Times editorial board framed the aftermath of the tragedy in Las Vegas starkly with this headline: "477 days. 521 mass shootings. Zero action from Congress." The last major push for gun reform fizzled in 2013 on partisan fault lines. The proposed legislation, formed as a reaction to Sandy Hook, was criticized for politicizing the event — a common refrain after many mass shootings. While America is deeply divided on the place of guns in society, there are some gun control proposals that have support from both gun-owning and non-gun-owning Americans alike.So, why do all of our conversations about gun control in the U.S. lead to dead-ends? This week on Flyover, a conversation about the division between Americans who count gun ownership as a fundamental freedom and those who feel that there should be more rules around who has the right to exercise that freedom.
Flyover: Is health care a right or a privilege?
Oct 22, 2017 - 3:00 PM CDT Every American needs it. Every American uses it. And yet we remain undecided on whether health care and the insurance that covers it is a right or a privilege. That's the essence of what Congress was arguing about in this most recent round of arguments over the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare.Are we hard workers who earn, through the money we make, the privilege of health care security? Or are we a community that supports others through tough times and pools our vast wealth to ensure security for all? Both narratives are at play in other social programs. So which will win out for health care coverage?
Flyover: What’s the American job worth?
Oct 1, 2017 We’re talking jobs this week on Flyover. Specifically, tax breaks and other government incentives given to private companies to bring jobs to your communities. Is that a good deal for you? Is this the way to a stronger economy? Tell us how you’re feeling.
Flyover: The politics of white resentment
Sep 24, 2017 In conversations about things like affirmative action, immigration reform, or the very phrase “Black Lives Matter,” it’s easy for white Americans to start to feel like they’re losing something when someone else gains. Recent polls show that during the Obama years, whites perceived anti-white discrimination to be on the rise in the U.S., which plays into the notion that racism is a zero-sum game that one side must be losing if another side is gaining. This week on Flyover, we’ll try to understand how white resentment continues to shape our politics and our communities.
