THE PURPLE PRINCIPLE

A Podcast for American Independents

What’s an independent to do in a partisan age?

How do independents remain informed and committed without tumbling into the echo chambers?

Are Americans truly as partisan as our politicians and major media?

Or do many more shades of purple exist in real America than on Cable TV maps of red and blue?

Objective, fact-based, and non-partisan, The Purple Principle addresses these questions for an audience of American independents who do not agree on everything but do agree…

partisanship is at the root of all our chronic issues. 

What if there are no one-party solutions to major problems?

ARE YOU A PROUD, PURPLE, AMERICAN INDEPENDENT? 

Our target listeners are independent Americans. These folks see both and often a third side to an issue; remain open to candidates of both major parties, depending on their character; and believe in our founding ideals of reason, science, civility, compassion and compromise.

Do you have a Purple Tale to tell:

  • Know of a political compromise achieved in your town, city or state?  
  • Had encounters with fellow Americans reflexively channeling partisan cable news or radio?
  • Play the purple peacemaker in a family of red and blue?

“Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;

Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world…

The best lack all conviction, while the worst

Are full of passionate intensity. ”
