TED Launched TED Audio Collective for Podcasts

On February 22, 2021, TED will launch the TED Audio Collective to house its growing collection of podcasts.

The podcasts in the TED Audio Collective are for listeners curious about everything from philosophy and psychology to science, technology, business and unexpected pathways in between – all curated through TED’s lens of “ideas worth spreading.” Here’s a sneak peek of exciting new content to expect over the coming months.

New in the TED Audio Collective:

Body Stuff with Dr. Jen Gunter: Dr. Jen Gunter is on a mission to make us experts on the way our bodies work. Body Stuff is an original show developed by TED that aims to demystify the systems of the body while debunking medical myths along the way.

Lost Birds with Mona Chalabi: In this original, sound-rich series, data scientist Mona Chalabi will take listeners on an inquiry into the central question: How can we use data to make sense of our lived experiences, and what are the limits of the data?

Conversations with People Who Hate Me: TED alum Dylan Marron is joining the TED Audio Collective to continue exploring what happens when online feuders step out from behind the keyboard and get to know the human on the other side of the screen. Don’t be fooled by the title! It’s actually a loving show that fosters unlikely connections in an age of increasing digital isolation.

Design Matters: The iconic Design Matters with Debbie Millman pulls back the curtain on how incredibly creative people design the arc of the lives. It’s the world’s first podcast about design – an inquiry into the broader world of creative culture through wide-ranging contemporary thought, Design Matters joined the TED Audio Collective in October 2020 and is independently produced independently, with TED amplifying the podcast to its global audience.
