"Authenticity is something that cannot be fabricated." – Sarah Kay
On this week's episode, poet Sarah Kay
, whose 2011 TED talk "If I Should Have a Daughter
" has been viewed over 9 million times, shares her thoughts on who gets (and who doesn't get) to have a voice, on the power of authenticity and vulnerability, and on what she'd do if the world were in imminent danger of destruction by an asteroid. And stay tuned for a shatteringly beautiful song/poem at the end.
Surprise Big Think interview clips from Josh Ritter
, Lewis Black
, and Neil DeGrasse Tyson
spark a thoughtful, playful, far-ranging conversation between Sarah and host Jason Gots
. It's deep fun.
