Sarah Kay: 12/15/15
This week on The Moment, Brian Koppelman talks to Sarah Kay, the world famous spoken word poet. Brian and Sarah talk about how 9/11 impacted her life as a young artist and why people feel unwelcomed in the “house of poetry.” Plus, Sarah reflects on her life on the road as an educator and poet, why she sees art as an exchange of gifts, and how she was confused for the waitstaff just before giving the TED Talk that changed her life.Topics mentioned:“If I Should Have a Daughter” a TED Talk by Sarah KayProject Voice“The Type” by Sarah KayBrown UniversityBowery PoetryNuyorican Poets Cafe28 Pieces from 2015 That Should Be Required Reading For Women by Emma GrayI’m 15-Years-Old And This Is What Love Feels Like by Anna Koppelman“Last Thoughts on Woody Guthrie” by Bob Dylan30 Rock “Reunion” episodeElection“On the Discomfort of Being in the Same Room as the Boy You Like” by Sarah Kay“Winter Without You” by Sarah KayCUPSI Poetry Slam“What We Build” a Scripps commencement address by Sarah KayPeople mentioned:Sarah KayDavid BermanMary KarrAnna KoppelmanLou ReedTina FeyPhil KayeAl GoreBill GatesChris AndersonCarly FiorinaMorgan SpurlockThis episode of The Moment is brought to you by Braintree.
