21. When Talking to Strangers Actually Goes Well with Travis Green

In this episode, we talk to Travis Green (@letustalkbooks on IG) about Talking to Strangers by Malcolm Gladwell. Although we had many hesitations and critiques of this book, Travis showed us how important it is, and has been, in his work training soldiers to actually talk to strangers everywhere around the world. Travis uses the cautionary tales of the book to improve his own and students’ open-mindedness and adaptability. However, this conversation among strangers is anything but a cautionary tale, as we share a deep conversation with Travis about his experiences and growth over time, and how books have literally saved his life.
