#1: Raj S –– A Dinner Party with 40 Strangers // Hello, Stranger

“Some people get caught up in a bit of a bubble where everyone's okay with the friends groups they have right now. I think we forget to socialise with other strangers, and when you get out of that bubble and see other stories and experiences, you realise how cool and beautiful it is.” (Raj)

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 Raj?
