This week we are joined by a conservative pundit and filmmaker Ami Horowitz. In the first half of the show, we discuss his background and his attempts to foster conversations between the political left and the political right. We offer a critical examination of some of his work while also allowing him to explain his motivations and the outcomes from his social experiments.
In the second half of the show, we discuss the strained relationship between Black people and Jews that has seen new stressors in recent years. Our guest helps us identify potential sources of this strain as well as potential solutions and starting points for conversations between our two tribes.

About Civic Cipher
Civic Cipher is a weekly radio show hosted by Ramses Ja and Q. Ward. This show is dedicated to empowering Black and Brown voices, allowing them to engage directly with their communities as well as the general population. Self-determination is critical to securing a future free of oppressive systems, and Civic Cipher exists to facilitate discussions toward this end. Furthermore, Civic Cipher seeks to inform non-POC allies who may not be privy to these types of discussions and optics. Finally, Civic Cipher seeks to provide long-form conversations in spaces where there is often a lack of significant resources, potent dialogue, or the necessary engagement for facilitating a healthy and productive civil discourse.
