Dave Miller has spent 14 years making radio, and he still thinks it’s the best job in the world. He’s currently the host of Think Out Loud on Oregon Public Broadcasting, where he gets to talk to scientists and senators, writers and ranchers, cooks and cops. From 2008-2011, he worked as the online host of the show. Before coming to OPB, Dave was the senior producer of Open Source, a nationally syndicated radio show based at WGBH in Boston, where he convinced the team to do two separate full-hour shows about the movie Groundhog Day. He began his radio career as a documentary producer at Sound Portraits Productions and StoryCorps. His stories have aired on All Things Considered, Morning Edition, and Weekend Edition Saturday.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxMtHood, where x=independently organized TED event.
At our TEDxMtHood event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. Visit TED.com to learn more.
