Seriously Entertaining - When Strangers Meet

This is House of SpeakEasy Foundation's The SpeakEasy Podcast where writers come together to eat, drink, and share stories on a range of themes. Hosted by SpeakEasy’s co-founders, Amanda Foreman and Lucas Wittmann, episodes will feature previously recorded storytelling performances from our live Seriously Entertaining shows at Joe’s Pub at The Public Theater in New York City as well as new audio segments from our outreach programs, including our bookmobile outings and work with high school students.

In this episode, poet-essayist and novelist Chris Abani, poet-critic Steph Burt and novelist and essayist Geoff Dyer share stories tied to the theme "When Strangers Meet." At the root of each of our performers stories, there seemed to be two basic questions just who is a stranger anyway? And what exactly can strangers tell us about ourselves?
