Ep. 171 How To Talk To Strangers With Clare Pooley

A fun chat with Clare Pooley about her new book Iona Iverson’s Rules for Commuting, giving nicknames to strangers, the impact of working from home all the time, and how she ended up singing backing vocals on an ABBA song. Plus – Dave and Andrew get VIP treatment at the Weird Al Yankovic concert, and Laura is plagued by beeps. We also recommend: Hide by Kiersten White, Deer Season by Erin Flanagan, and Starship for Sale by M. R. Forbes. Audiobook of the Week is The Unwilling by John Hart.
