It's nice to meet you! How do you like it here in Connecticut?
Small talk is both the bane of our existence and essential in our existential quest to understand our place in the world.

We talk to a humorist, writing teacher, meteorologist, and philosopher about small talk. And we want to hear about your small talk stories.
