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.

"We had to unveil an Africa that wasn't that well known to ... a number of audiences." -- Emeka Okafor

There are many stereotypes about Africa: that it's a place of conflict, of disease, war and famine. Or that it's a single place rather than a continent of 54 distinct countries. We'll engage with thinkers and doers who are constructing new realities for their respective countries — and for the African continent a whole.
