NPR’s TED Radio Hour
If you’re looking to sit down with a glass of wine and do some meaningful thinking about the world, NPR’s TED Radio Hour is the podcast for you.
Hosted by NPR’s Guy Raz, rather than an individual 40-minute-plus episode, this US-based podcast is categorised into themes like “Headspace”, “The Food We Eat”, and “Democracy on Trial”. Within these themes are five separate 10-15 minute episodes with opinions from experts worldwide.
As is the way with TED talks, NPR’s podcast covers a vast array of topics with multiple different points of view and opinion. SME owners and entrepreneurs will no doubt find significant interest in the colourful discussion around some of the world’s biggest issues.
