Lulu Miller, co-host of NPR’s Invisibilia, shares her lessons on crafting remarkable stories by accommodating chance in your creative process.
Lulu Miller, the co-host of NPR’s Invisibilia, covers stories that challenge our assumptions about how humans behave and organisms work – from the story of a blind woman who can see the rain but not her daughter’s smile, to a virus that inspires crickets to have more sex. In her work at Invisibilia, she interweaves personal stories and science in a way that might make you see your own life differently, and in this episode (recorded at CreativeMornings/DC in November 2014) she shares her lessons on crafting remarkable stories by accommodating chance in your creative process.
