You know when you’re talking to someone late at night and for some reason, you feel like you can talk about the things that actually matter? We think those conversations are a pretty good way to make genuine connection happen. We use insights from psychology research to design interactions that help you get closer to having access to those connection-building conversations in any situation, at any time, with anyone.

In so many settings, there’s a very narrow range of things that you’re supposed to say....It’s great to be somewhere where you feel like you can be more honest...
