  • An excerpt from a recording that is part of an experiment I'm doing called "Jason Sims is Calling You."

    I call strangers and near-strangers who submit their numbers and try to have a pleasant conversation with them. Then I podcast the recordings.

    I was talking to a gentleman named Gaetan from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, and I thought he summed up well my reasons for doing the project.

    I'm three conversations in, and they've all been delightful.
