107 – Talking to Even More Strangers

The conspirators go more in-depth on how little we know about the people we don’t know (Malcolm Gladwell’s Talking to Strangers), plus more COVID19 chattering.

Apologies for the audio quality–now that everybody’s working from home and practicing safe social distancing… well, it’s Skype o’clock.

Content warning: this episode contains some discussion of sexual assault, as it relates to the book. Non-graphic.
