Last week, Talk of the Nation embarked on a political adventure and asked you to serve as our guides. We wanted to hear your stories of the first time you became political: What happened, and how does that experience influence your politics? Today, we'll hear your replies.
George Lakoff, author of "Moral Politics: How Liberals and Conservatives Think" and Mary Eberstadt, editor of "Why I Turned Right: Leading Baby Boom Conservatives Chronicle Their Political Journey," talk about how people form their core political beliefs.
NPR recently launched a new project called Get My Vote, which invites you to share your thoughts on a simple question: What will it take for a candidate to get your vote? We've created a Web site that allows you to upload your own commentaries in the form of audio, video or text.
Watch a video from host Neal Conan talking about the project and how you can join in.
