What Fear Can Teach Us


Welcome to another Tuesday with TED. Today we have fiction writer Karen Thompson Walker talking about “What Fear Can Teach Us.”

Karen tells the story of the whaleship Essex and shows how fear propels imagination, as it forces us to imagine possible futures and determine how to cope with them.

What frightens you? How does fear flavor your imagination? What stories do your fears tell?

Until next time,
Cynthia Patton
