TED Radio Hour on WGCU

Thursdays at 8:00pm
  • Hosted by Guy Raz

"Talks" from the legendary TED stage are coming to radio for the first time and in a new format that will intrigue curious listeners and stir the imagination. Each year, TED hosts the world's most fascinating thinkers - convention-breaking mavericks, icons, and geniuses - who give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes or less about the best ideas in Technology, Entertainment, Design and much more. Through this exciting co-production between TED and NPR, each episode will focus around a theme (such as "Happiness") and TEDTalks that put ideas about the theme through the paces. But the TEDTalks are just a launching point. Woven into and around a Talk, we'll layer in innovative soundscapes that bring ideas to life and break-off into conversation with the original speakers to probe why an idea made waves, got inside people's heads, and provoked excitement.
