Julie Burstein (Writer / Radio Producer)
As a producer, Julie Burstein builds places to talk (brilliantly) about creative work.
Her book Spark: How Creativity Works, shares what she knows, and traces the roots of some of the twenty-first century's most influential and creative thinkers, including Joyce Carol Oates, Yo-Yo Ma, David Milch, Isabel Allende, and Joshua Redman.
Here's what her blog bio says:
I'm a writer, speaker, media producer and host with a passion for creativity in everyday life. In 2000 I created PRI's Studio 360, public radio's premiere program about pop culture and the arts, hosted by Kurt Andersen.
Over the years, I've also worked as a producer and arts reporter at NPR and with Terry Gross at WHYY, I often guest-host for Leonard Lopate on his wonderful show on WNYC, and I've produced radio series for Carnegie Hall and the New York Philharmonic.I led the Studio 360 team for many years, and the only thing that could take me away from the excitement of producing a weekly show was the opportunity to write the first Studio 360 book.Spark: How Creativity Works is published by Harper.
When I'm not writing or making radio, or spending time with my family, I can usually be found in the pottery studio.
