Andy Dehnart's writing about television, culture, and media has appeared on NPR and in Playboy, The Daily Beast, and other publications. Andy publishes and writes realityblurred.com; directs the journalism program at Stetson University in Florida, where he also teaches creative nonfiction and journalism; and is an improviser who performs at SAK Comedy Lab in Orlando, Fla. This talk is about the power of reality television and its ability to teach us about our collective human experience; it suggests we change the way we watch reality TV to be simultaneously more critical and more empathetic. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
