Wherever you go on this topic, sooner or later you will have to make small talk – so how do you get used to it? Our producer asked the people who probably speak best in small talk: the bartenders. Melissa and Alice then join Lifehacker Staff Writer Nick Douglas in the studio to talk about our different feelings during the idle chatter and whether there is a point in talking about the weather.

Our weekly updates

Every week we want to tell you about the improvements we have made to our lives. This week we talked about cooking vegetables from your CSA as soon as you get them (hello, huge corn crop) and removing social media completely from our phones. You can do that? What will you do instead of flipping through Instagram with envy? Time will tell.
