3.1 - THAT PODCAST with CHRIS MCCAUSLAND... where we rely on the kindness of strangers – PART ONE

THAT PODCAST... where we rely on the kindness of strangers and wonder if, generally, we’re good people (or not so much) – PART ONE 


Lockdown made us all pioneers in a brave new world of digital socialising - and increasingly, interaction with perfect strangers. From QuarantineChat to neighbourhood WhatsApp groups, we started building new local and international networks in our lives. Chris McCausland hosts an episode that explores intimacy with strangers from multiple perspectives – and what will and must change going forward. 


Part 1 features a piece by writer Shahid Iqbal Khan, as well as conversations with kindness research director Dr Oliver Scott Curry and artist and entrepreneur Danielle Baskin.
