Smart Talk invited the candidates for the U.S. Senate, House of Representatives and the Governor's office to appear on the program so that voters can hear where they stand on the issues.  Hear the candidates here.

Also, have you wondered why everyone seems so angry? Politics are often polarizing but it seems there is more hostility than ever before. What is causing the blatant anger in the political discourse? How can we speak with civility while still disagreeing with one another?

Poll shows 80% of Americans believe political anger could result in violence.

Joining Smart Talk is Darcy Maier, co-chair of the Better Angels Alliance of Gettysburg, along with members Kerr Thompson and Chad Collie. Better Angels is a bipartisan citizen's movement working to unify individuals with different political outlooks.

Also, on Smart Talk is Lanae Ampersand, clinical program manager for psychiatry at the outpatient psychiatry clinic, Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center who counsels patients with anger management issues.
