The Utah Council for Citizen Diplomacy is proud to begin a new podcast series: Fireside Chats! These chats are short conversations with Utah’s citizen diplomats who are reformulating the American worldview from one of despair to one of hope during a time of multiple crises. These 30-40 minute long segments are discussion-based, where a small group of participants can engage with the speaker.  Fireside chats are intended to create an intimate conversation between the audience and the speaker.
