9:06 The Tuesday Feature: The TED Radio Hour - Framing the Story (NRP/TED)
Four TED speakers explore the art of storytelling — and how good stories have the power to transform our perceptions of the world.
Featuring four TED Talks:
1. Andrew Stanton: What Makes a Good Story? Filmmaker Andrew Stanton explains how the strongest storytelling is joke telling.
2. Tracy Chevalier: How Do You Find a Story in a Painting? When writer Tracy Chevalier looks at paintings, she imagines the stories behind them: How did the painter meet his model? What would explain that look in her eye? She shares the story of Vermeer's most famous painting that inspired her best-selling novel Girl With a Pearl Earring.
3. Chip Kidd: How Do Book Covers Tell Their Own Stories? Chip Kidd doesn't judge a book by its cover; he creates covers that embody the books — and he does it with a wicked sense of humor. Kidd showcases the art and deep thought of his cover designs.
4. Chimamanda Adichie: What Are The Dangers of a Single Story? Our lives, our cultures, are composed of many overlapping stories. Novelist Chimamanda Adichie tells the story of how she found her authentic cultural voice — and warns that if we hear only a single story about another person or country, we risk a critical misunderstanding.
5. Andrew Stanton: What Are The Clues to a Good Story? Filmmaker Andrew Stanton shares what he knows about storytelling — starting at the end and working back to the beginning. Earlier this episode, Stanton shared a story that does exactly that.
