This week in Strangerville, we explore hard conversations--their value, and why we sometimes avoid them. A law professor accidentally replies all on an email chain. Strangers in a park share their vulnerabilities. A 30-year-old single woman chases a man she just met to Egypt. A man talks to his 9-year-old daughter about the ugliness of this year's presidential election. Laugh and cry with us, and don't forget that sometimes strangers really do have the best candy.
