It's an ultra packed episode this week in Strangerville, in large part because of all of the happenings in America over the last week. We invite you to join us on a thoughtful and peaceful journey through stories about hard conversations. Come and laugh with us, cry with us, blow snot all over the wall with us (wait . . . you guys don't do that? Yeah . . . neither do we . . . we were just testing you . . . ).
As always, we beg you like people without pride to share Strangerville with your family and friends. And if you haven't done so yet, please go leave us a review on what the kids are calling the iTunes. Cathie will nod approvingly if you do (this is worth a lot).
Also, of special note, Jolyn and I tried our hand at singing a Paul Simon song in this episode. It was much more complicated than we were expecting. And I now have a new respect for professional musicians.
Without further ado,
This week in Strangerville, we explore hard conversations--their value, and why we sometimes avoid them. A law professor accidentally replies all on an email chain. Strangers in a park share their vulnerabilities. A 30-year-old single woman chases a man she just met to Egypt. A man talks to his 9-year-old daughter about the ugliness of this year's presidential election. Laugh and cry with us, and don't forget that sometimes strangers really do have the best candy.
