TED Radio Hour
Saturdays at 2 p.m. | Sundays at 6 a.m.

An idea is the one gift that you can hang onto even after you've given it away. Welcome to TED Radio Hour hosted by Manoush Zomorodi – 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 – and injects soundscapes and conversations that bring these ideas to life.

TED Radio Hour is a co-production of NPR and TED.
