As the national expert in talking to strangers, I spoke with KCBS morning anchors Stan Bunger and Susan Leigh Taylor about “National Talk in an Elevator Day.” Here’s a recording of the live interview, which aired in San Francisco on July 31, 2015. It’s about three minutes long, and you’ll probably notice that I’m much more interested in the subject matter than in promoting Strangers Have the Best Candy!
Friday, July 31 is “National Talk in an Elevator Day.” For Margaret Meps Schulte, that means “San Francisco Talk on the Radio Day!”
Tune into KCBS (740 AM/106.9 FM) at 9:30 AM PST to hear Meps’ interview with morning anchors Stan Bunger and Susan Leigh Taylor about the benefits of talking to strangers. If you’re not in the Bay Area, no problem — it’s just as easy to listen on the internet.
Meps has even penned a limerick in honor of the occasion:
When you get on the dull workday lift,
Where you always give strangers short shrift,
Just this once, say hello,
And then see how things go,
It’s the day to give strangers that gift.
