This introvert forced herself to talk to strangers. Here's what she learned

The age-old advice tells us to never talk to strangers — but Molly McCloy did just that. 

McCloy is an accomplished storyteller and writer. She’s been named the Moth StorySLAM winner four times. But, she’s not an incredibly outgoing person in real life.

A threatening encounter during the pandemic shook her — and she decided to take on a personal project: She would talk to strangers. 

The Show spoke with her more about how it’s going and what led her there.
