I was flattered to be asked to return to my alma mater and speak at TEDx YorkU. The organizers told me they were looking for nontraditional TED speakers, ones that could bring a performative element to their talks. After much deliberation, I decided to do what I do best and tell stories.
The first part of the video is a little confusing. I’m challenging one of the previous speakers, a badass percussionist who carried a big staff, to a manly duel.
