Dave Miller's job as the host of Oregon Public Broadcasting's "Think Out Loud" is to create a daily space for civil, engaged, and meaningful conversation by focusing on listening to each other. However, listening is hard and Dave admits that sometimes even he struggles it. However, Dave believes that becoming a better listener could change the world. Here, he shares a little more on that theory and how we can all listen just a little bit better.
Dave Miller has spent 14 years making radio and he still thinks it’s the best job in the world. He’s currently the host of Think Out Loud on Oregon Public Broadcasting, where he gets to talk to scientists and senators, writers and ranchers, cooks and cops. From 2008–2011, he worked as the online host of the show. Before coming to OPB, Dave was the senior producer of Open Source, a nationally syndicated radio show based at WGBH in Boston, where he convinced the team to do two separate full-hour shows about the movie Groundhog Day. He began his radio career as a documentary producer at Sound Portraits Productions and StoryCorps. His stories have aired on All Things Considered, Morning Edition, and Weekend Edition Saturday.
