Miranda Wylie helps bring two of Austin’s most beloved events to life each year: BedPost Confessions and SXSW. Whether developing a panel on the attention economy for SXSW or coaching a performer on sharing a deeply personal story at BedPost Confessions, Miranda begins the conversation with the question “why?” The conference programmer by day and storyteller aficionado by night strives for all speakers to have clarity on their vision because without it, vulnerability cannot emerge. Miranda is an ex-New Yorker turned Austinite who advocates for sexual literacy and emotional justice, and whose feminist lens serves her in parenting away from the “boys will be boys” mentality. Check out her podcast SEEN for intimate conversations surrounding identity.
