Sarah Stewart Holland and Beth Silvers co-host the Pantsuit Politics podcast, featured in the New York Times, The Atlantic, and named by Apple Podcasts as one of the Best Shows of 2021. Their discussions provide the audience with a framework for navigating political conversations with others who do not share the same political views and aim to guide readers and listeners in navigating difficult conversations with grace and respect. 


The two attorneys are also the co-authors of I Think You’re Wrong (But I’m Listening): A Guide to Grace-Filled Political Conversation (2019) and Now What?: How to Move Forward When We're Divided (About Basically Everything) (2002).
