Special: Remote—but not alone

Special episode

In this episode...

In this remote-working world, a lot of us spend most of our days at our desks alone. While this might mean more freedom, let’s be honest: it gets a bit lonely sometimes.

So with this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week theme tackling loneliness, we decided to cook up an experiment: pair up strangers on LinkedIn for 20-minute chats, with a couple of prompts to keep awkwardness at bay. 

The result? A meaningful exploration of loneliness through the shared experiences of strangers—covering grief, travel, motherhood, and much more.

About the guest

Strangers brought together by a LinkedIn post.
