We've all been a coffee shop with only one other person in line front of us. We look down at our phones, but aren't really reading anything. We're suspicious and shy. Why don't we just start a conversation? On this episode, we’re going to explore why we don’t talk to strangers, how we can and what happens when we do.

Our guest is veteran journalist Joe Keohane, whose written for New York Magazine, The Boston Globe, The New Yorker, Wired and many other publications. Joe’s the author of a fantastic new book called, The Power of Strangers: The Benefits of Connecting in a Suspicious World.
