WBHM Politics: Family, the Holidays and Politics
Take a few family members, mix in some strong political opinions and plop them into a holiday gathering. It’s a perfect recipe for clashes, fraught emotions and maybe some mashed potatoes thrown against the wall. And that’s the feast we’re serving up on this edition of WBHM Politics.
We hear from professional counselor Gary Williams about how to navigate those treacherous waters. We also talk to former Marine Corp Commandant and retired Birmingham-Southern College President General Charles Krulak about how war has changed in the last generation.

In Birmingham these issues became very real when a student was shot and killed at Huffman High School earlier this month. We explore the topic through a series of conversations.
