I’d like to buy you a coffee…

I’m on a mission to speak to as many people as possible to discover what lies at the heart of being human. Let’s spend an hour in conversation about your experience of what it’s like to be you.

Here are some of the humans I've spoken to so far...

114 – We Have To Care For Others, Not Just Ourselves – Ahmed

“When I was about eight years old I remember seeing on TV about the little boy with his father who was killed on the Gaza Strip. I was just a kid at the time. The boy was barely older than me.

113 – Lost Between Nationalities – Amarens

"I did my very first exchange in Panama when I was sixteen. It felt like such an intense experience. Until about two weeks into my exchange I just felt really excited. My host family literally lived in the jungle. We didn’t have water. There were monkeys. It was...

112 – I’ll Always Choose Cricket Over Girls – Sharad

"I feel like there's more human connection in India. You live for someone else there, and someone else lives for you. That bond you share with your own people is something I’ve not experienced anywhere else. What’s the point of life if it isn’t for human connection?...

111- I’m Consciously Trying To Make This Home – Betti

As a girl in your mid-twenties, you see people getting married, getting promotions, getting engaged and buying a house. And it’s a lot of pressure. If you stay in one place your entire life that’s a very easy thing to do. Boy meets girl, girl meets boy, high school,...

110 – I Just Want To Live Pain Free – Mathilde & Jean

Jean: "I spent fifteen years living in Venezuela and four years in the US. I was in the US because my mother had a business visa. And literally the first order of Trump was to eliminate those visas. So we had to flee.  When we first moved to the US, my mother was...

109 – My Decision To Become A Nun Was An Escape – Maria

"I opened up an art centre with a friend this January. It’s definitely out of my comfort zone, but I would regret it so much if I didn’t do it. The hardest part has been learning to live with uncertainty. Some days you sleep. Some days you don’t. Some days you might...

108 – I Have A Lot Of Trust In Humanity – Jules

"I don’t feel very attached to my nationality as an American. I think it’s arbitrary, it’s made up. We were born there, we were given a passport, and that’s it. Of course, you’re often raised where you were born, so you inherit certain cultural norms and language...

107 – I Love Existential Crises And Molars – Amy

"I love existential crises and molars. I think they go hand in hand. I study dentistry so I look at people’s teeth a lot. I always notice their smile first.  I think a lot of people are scared of going to the dentist because of the fear of the unknown. In the doctors,...

106 – I Want To Be Irresponsible – Jin

"I have this little notebook. Whenever I meet somebody who I get close to, I ask them to write me a message in their native language. The rules are they can’t tell me what it means, and I can’t use Google Translate. I have to wait until I meet somebody else who speaks...

105 – Being Parents Is Teamwork – Emily

“We’re raising our son with four languages. I speak to him in Swedish, my husband speaks in Polish, we communicate in English at home and at nursery he speaks Spanish. He’s just two and a half. We moved to Valencia when my son was very little. It was so stupid…
