The most important conversations, for anyone to join.

Every day, we come together from across the globe to talk about philosophy and science, art and technology, finance and history, religion and music: all the thoughts and emotions we experience as humans, without judgement or certificates.

Our salons are live, unrecorded, evening-length discussions that our community ensures are patient, thought-provoking and fun. Come join us in making the world’s conversations better!
