Speak_Easy

We live under prohibition.

No, not alcohol. Something far more important is being stripped from us: our right to talk. What makes matters worse, is that our silence is self-imposed.

For too long, we have taken a vow of silence when we're out in the world. Daily, we miss chances to make new friends, and to revel in our collective humanity. All because we can't look away from a phone. Or maybe we're all so addicted to personal space, that we embrace the silence like junkies.

We've all forgotten how great real human interaction feels because the like button has desensitized us to it.

We aim to strike down this prohibition by embracing the power of real conversation. We find ourselves as captive audiences all the time. Moments where we're surrounded, but alone- and tragically, we tend to fall mute.

We know that when people begin to give in to the moment, and embrace conversation, they'll be more talkative. More genuine human connection equals more genuine happiness.

Speaking is easy. Try it.
