TED Radio Hour

Saturdays at 3pm, Sundays at noon, Tuesdays at 11am

The TED Radio Hour offers a fresh step back from the frenetic pace of news. By pulling back from immediate events to explore the ideas underlying them, a whole new, connected picture opens up. And, for the most part, it's hopeful: astonishing inventions, fresh approaches to old problems, new ways to teach and learn. Through this series, public radio stations can offer the one gift you can hang onto even after you've given it away -- the magic of an idea worth spreading.
