When perception doesn’t line up with reality
What happens when what you think is true doesn’t line up with reality? We call that a perception gap, and it can lead to damaging misconceptions about society’s most pressing issues. In this podcast, we explore the spaces where our perceptions don’t reflect the truth of the world around us – and in doing so look for solutions and common ground. Hosted by The Christian Science Monitor’s Samantha Laine Perfas.
In Season 2 of “Perception Gaps,” we explore misperceptions in the American criminal justice system. We look at the history of mass incarceration, racial disparities in the system, and the role imprisonment plays in the U.S. today.
Is the U.S. crime rate as high as we think it is? How politically divided are Americans today? Join us as we explore perception gaps in 10 of society’s most divisive issues – and find common ground in the process.
