I love of siting alone in cafes, discretely listening to conversations between people sitting at adjacent tables. The practice of overhearing is a gamble— not all conversations between friends offer something meaningful to an outsider. Beyond that, a careless eavesdropper can be shot with a ruthless side-eye at any moment.But listening to the first episode of “All Talk” fed my eavesdropping habit risk-free. I loved the discussion of Robin Wall Kimmerer’s words about why people mistreat the earth— the struggle to process and express grief is such a cord between break-ups and climate change, and relevant to many other experiences. I was moved by sensory details of water during the Pittsburg protest, and visceral recollections of past heart break.
