TED Radio Hour

We can’t know what we’re passionate about if we’re never exposed to it. TED Radio Hour provides an opportunity for learners of all ages to put their curiosity playlist on shuffle and discover stories and ideas that boost them into hours of exploration.

When we watch an inspiring 10-15 minute speech and wish it would keep going, TED Radio Hour keeps it going. With episodes like Failure is an Option, Shifting Time, and Playing with Perception, we can lean into our desire to know more about technology, education, and design (what TED stands for). Host “Guy Raz explores the emotions, insights, and discoveries that make us human” with some of the world’s top thought leaders in their respective industries. The next time you or your young learners are craving something new, check out TED Radio Hour, and let the discoveries begin.
