What is a Fireside Chat?

A fireside chat is a conversational, intimate forum where speakers share insights and stories with an audience, promoting understanding of various topics. Originating from President Franklin D. Roosevelt's radio addresses from 1933 to 1945, these chats aimed to soothe the American public's anxieties amidst the Great Depression and World War II.
