I flat out loved my conversation and connection with Celeste Headlee. What an embodiment of awareness and wisdom with all kinds of practical, yet unique perceptions. Her words run deep. We talk about the corona virus and how it is both a challenge and an opportunity. We also dive into her brilliant new book, Do Nothing, which could not have come out at a more relevant pivot point in our existence.
Celeste Headlee (born December 30, 1969) is the host of the Georgia Public Broadcasting program On Second Thought. She has previously been the co-host of the national morning news show The Takeaway from Public Radio International and WNYC. Before joining fellow host John Hockenberry in 2009, she was the Midwest Correspondent for NPR’s Day to Day and the host of a weekly show on Detroit Public Radio. Ms. Headlee is the author of We Need to Talk: How to Have Conversations That Matter.
