#39: Civilized Discourse in Our Local Neighborhoods [At the beginning of the episode, I call it “Episode 38.” My mistake; ignore that.]

In this brief episode, I discuss civilized discourse further, drawing attention to the importance of focusing our attention on local conversations, but also of treating others online with the same courtesy we would treat them if they were in our living room.
