At an early age we were taught never to talk to strangers. In teaching us this, the adult world was legitimately concerned for our safety. Now grown up, should we continue to heed their words?
Paul and Jordan talk to Robbie Stokes Jr., Natalia Bialobrzewska, and Alisa Choi Darcy, from the non-governmental organization, I Talk To Strangers, about the value of conversation with those we do not know. The three share how interacting with unfamiliar people has great learning potential and is at the heart of their dialogue-driven events. The episode explores important issues of boundaries, privacy, and social etiquette, when it comes to with whom and when we talk to others, while provoking the question: Should we be doing more to meet new people, face-to-face, and perhaps be happier for it?
