Ted Radio Hour


    

An idea is the one gift that you can hang onto even after you’ve given it away. The TED Radio Hour, hosted by Guy Raz, is a journey through fascinating ideas: astonishing inventions, fresh approaches to old problems, new ways to think and create.

12 p.m.  Monday

Based on “talks” given by riveting speakers on the world-renowned TED stage, each show is centered on a common theme such as the source of happiness, crowd-sourcing innovation, power shifts, or inexplicable connections – and injects soundscapes and conversation that bring these ideas to life. TED Radio Hour is a co-production of NPR and TED.
