Results May Vary Podcast Podcast: Design Thinking for Living
About This Show
Tracy DeLuca and Chris Waugh have worked in the field of design thinking and innovation for over 17 years between them. They’ve helped sustain a Food Revolution for Jamie Oliver, and redesigned the way L.A. County votes. They’ve even engaged the world’s most creative minds in science by turning their genes into music at TED. Throughout their careers, they always wondered what would happen if they took the same creative problem-solving process they used to help well-known organizations solve their toughest challenges and applied it to people’s lives. Results May Vary is a thoughtful experiment to see just what happens when you set out to intentionally design your life.

RMV 15 Jenny Jin: You Can Design For College (and Beyond)
Today we introduce you to designer, Jenny Jin, whose motto is “always be learning!” A graduate of Stanford and MIT, she recently worked at the Alicia Foundation, founded by world renowned chef of El Bulli, Ferran Adria, to promote healthy eating for everyone. Jenny is an entrepreneurial learner and doer, and is here to inspire us with her a sense of optimism, and roll-up-your-sleeves / kick open your own door attitude. Living up to her motto, we recently caught up with Jenny as she was preparing to lead a class at MIT’s Edgerton Center for Experiential Learning to teach undergrads how to apply design thinking to their lives. She is grateful for her amazing graduate TA's for the class - Lea (background in education), Nila (background working in oil rigs), and Prerna Sekhi (background in social enterprises) - who all dropped other classes to make helping facilitate this class a priority.
