#2: Stephen E –– Impact is a Warm Hug // Hello, Stranger

“I’m talking about a hug where you squeeze and you smile and you dig your face into the other person’s shoulder. To me, that’s impact. You know you’ve made a difference in a persons life when they come to you with that sort of emotion” (Stephen)

Is it possible to connect with anybody at all and have a conversation that enriches our lives?

I’m Andrew Riis and welcome to the experiment. I believe there is depth, beauty and inspiration inside everyone when we take the time to connect. This podcast does just that.

Each episode is a conversation with someone that is or used to be a stranger. Perhaps we don’t need scholars or celebrities to create a meaningful podcast... Maybe some of the best stories are tucked away, folded into the pockets of random passers-by, of people who may have just never been given a space to tell their story.

Listened to the conversation? Now it’s your turn. On the other side of hello, anything is possible.

Who in your life is similar or different from Stephen?
