What can being in the most extreme, terrifying situations teach you about empathy and communication? Award-winning journalist, New York Times podcast host, and former NPR host, Lulu García-Navarro has faced bomb blasts and even been rescued by Mexican Marines after being trapped in a flooding car during a hurricane. Telling the stories of what is often the worst day of people’s lives has taught her how to listen and talk to people whom you vehemently disagree with. Even if you haven’t been shot at by insurgents, we all know what it’s like to be on the frontlines of discord, and she will illuminate how to make yourself heard and connect with those around you.
