Have you heard of TED talks? Shame on you if you haven’t (juuuuust kidding). TED talks are amazing and the TED radio hour is a podcast created around sharing pieces of those talks. The podcast is co-produced by NPR and TED, giving the conversational voice that fans of NPR love, mixed with the investigative intrigue that lovers of TED will resonate with. The episodes usually have a theme that combines multiple TED talks into a cohesive hour of insight and exploration. Guy Raz, the show’s host is everything you’d expect from an NPR production: charming, interesting and pleasant to listen to.
I highly recommend checking it out next time you’re stuck in snow storm traffic (aka, now if you live in Denver).
