TED Ra­dio Hour

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Living - - GUIDE -

www.new­stalk.com/tedra­dio­hour The Sun­day evening slot — 6-7pm — is perfect for this long and thought­ful ex­am­i­na­tion of top­ics that are di­verse but con­nected by their de­ter­mi­na­tion to look ahead, make sense of the world and where we are go­ing. The se­ries is based on TED Talks given by dif­fer­ent, al­ways bril­liant speak­ers, and each episode takes a par­tic­u­lar theme to ex­am­ine from a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent an­gles.

The ra­dio hour takes salient points from dif­fer­ent speak­ers, and works them to­gether to give a va­ri­ety of an­gles and in­ter­pre­ta­tions on as­pects of our hu­man­ity and out­come. Some re­cent ex- am­ples in­clude School, and re­think­ing our ap­proach to ed­u­ca­tion; The Foun­tain of Youth, on how we might live longer and bet­ter; Why We Should Slow Down, on the im­por­tance of do­ing less; Hard­wired, on the pre­de­ter­min­ing na­ture — or oth­er­wise — of our bi­ol­ogy. Ev­ery­thing up for dis­cus­sion is rel­e­vant, in­ter­est­ing, and teased out in a way that is thought­ful and com­pelling.
