Listen here: TED Radio Hour
TED Radio Hour – For an hour-long compilation of TED Talks, hosted by Guy Raz.
I particularly love listening to these when I need a little inspiration. They are thought-provoking and Guy is a great host. Also good for background listening when working on projects!
The TED Radio Hour is a journey through fascinating ideas: astonishing inventions, fresh approaches to old problems, new ways to think and create. 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. The TED Radio Hour is hosted by Guy Raz, and is a co-production of NPR & TED. Follow the show @TEDRadioHour.
As a host and correspondent, Guy has interviewed and profiled more than 6000 people including Christopher Hitchens, Condoleezza Rice, Jimmy Carter, Shimon Peres, General David Petraeus, Al Gore, Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Eminem, Taylor Swift and many many others.
Guy has anchored live coverage on some of the biggest stories in recent years including the killing of Osama bin Laden, the Newtown School Shootings and the 2012 Presidential election.
Guy joined NPR in 1997 as an intern for All Things Considered and has worked virtually every job in the newsroom from temporary production assistant to breaking news anchor. His first job was the assistant to NPR’s legendary news analyst Daniel Schorr.
