Starlee Kine: Fear, Heartbreak, and Making It Happen Against All Odds

About this talk

In this entertaining talk, This American Life contributor and producer Starlee Kine shares her vision of our ideas as rambunctious little orphans that need to find a home. So how do we get them out into the world, and send them on their way? For Kine, the answer is persistence, collaboration, fear, and sheer force of will.

    My metaphor is more about beavers. If they don’t use what they have been given (long sharp teeth) they will grow into their brains and eventually kill them. Use your creativity or lose your mind.

    BORING!  this presentations should have taken two minutes.  how lame.  The funny part is her self-indulgent presentation would not have been worthy of NPR.
