The first of a two part conversation with Michael Meade about all things genius


Ani and Lyn are very pleased indeed to welcome back to Positvely Revolting, author, mythological scholar, and riveting speaker Michael Meade. We'll be having an in-depth conversation with Michael about his new book The Genius Myth. This book draws on decades of his work with at-risk youth and at-risk people to combine real life experiences with mythic tales and profound exploration of the wisdom of genius. Since this is the first of a two week conversation, we'll be focusing on just what genius is, and how as Michael says, everyone has their own genius ability. I'm going to bet poetry and stories will be involved. If you've ever had a question for Michael Meade, now is you're chance dear listener, call in at 503-231-8187

Michael will be speaking in Portland at The Portland Genius Event, Wednesday May 18th at 7pm, at the Frist Unitarian church, 1034 SW 13th Ave.
