Natalie Swedosh wants to strike up a chat – with you!

Thursday 5th December / presented by Taylah Strano

When was the last time you struck up a chat with a total stranger?

If it's been a while, or maybe never, it might be worth asking yourself why. Maybe it's nerves, maybe you reckon there's nothing to talk about? Melbourne social enterprise Strike Up A Chat are trying to change, or more so, start a conversation to encourage friendliness and reduce growing social isolation.

Founder and 'chat activist' Natalie Swedosh has just travelled around the US, striking up conversations with a bunch of people, and now she's in Perth to do the same.

Natalie joins Taylah to strike up a chat - if you're interested in doing the same, you can visit the Facebook page here, or the website here
