Is it possible to connect with anybody at all and have a conversation that enriches our lives?


Welcome to the experiment


Hello, stranger. I’m Andrew Riis (Insta | LinkedIn), from Sydney, Australia. This is by far the most meaningful work of my life so far.

Steven Pressfield says “The disease of our times is that we live on the surface. We’re a mile wide and an inch deep.”

I believe there is depth, beauty and inspiration inside everyone when we take the time to connect. This podcast does just that.

Each episode is a conversation with someone that is or used to be a stranger. Because… perhaps we don’t need scholars or celebrities to create a meaningful podcast, maybe some of the best stories are tucked away, folded into the pockets of random passers-by or strangers on the train, of people who may have just never been given a space to tell their story.

By the way – this project isn’t only about me having conversations. It’s also about you having conversations. At the end of an episode, you’ll be able to fill in a form and get connected with another random listener somewhere in the world.

I am really looking forward to the big launch on the 18th of June! The aim is to get enough listens and reviews within the first few days to hit the New and Noteworthy list. Once Hello, Stranger hits that list it will be shown to thousands of strangers. If you want to help spread the word, head to the “SHARE” page to find out how you can help 🙂
