Ask, Clarify, Confirm | Amelia Spalter | TEDxBrownU

“How do we become a society of effective listeners?” In this talk, Amelia Spalter shares her experience with interviewing and the importance of listening. Amelia Spalter is an undergraduate concentrator in Religious Studies. She is the founder and Editor in Chief of Brown University Interviews. A brief selection of her previous interviews include media personality Norman Lear, attorney Alan Dershowitz, singer/songwriter Seal, and Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors. Before enrolling at Brown University, her formal education was stewarded primarily by television. As such, she now plans to pay it forward by pursuing a career in television writing. Spalter is also Director of the Interviews Board for the Brown Political Review. When not interviewing, she serves as the founding President of the Brown University Screenwriting Collective, the Ivy League’s largest pre-professional screenwriting organization. Her other publications include sports reporting for the Brown Daily Herald and an occasional letter of demand or manifesto. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
