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.
Steven Pressfield says “The disease of our times is that we live on the surface. We’re a mile wide and an inch deep.”
I believe there is depth, beauty and inspiration inside everyone when we take the time to connect and listen. So, I've started a podcast doing just that! it’s called Hello, Stranger, and each episode is a conversation with someone that is or used to be a stranger.
My friend Kaley summed it up nicely:
"This idea that you 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 or strangers on the train, of people who may have just never been given a space to tell their story."
If you are at all intrigued, please subscribe to Hello, Stranger on your podcast app to be a part of this experiment. And if you have Instagram, go and follow Hello Stranger Podcast - one word, no dots or dashes. I’ll be doing updates there.
Oh and one more thing - this project isn’t only about me having conversations. It’s also about you having conversations. At the end of an episode, you’ll be able to get connected with another random listener somewhere in the world.
