Random Downloads

by A. Arencibia on Aug 11, 2017
Rating: ★★★☆☆

I love this podcast, learning new random things each day is great. The problem comes when it would randomly start downloading 100+ episodes at a time. I went through and deleted them all. And a few hours later, did it again. Unsubscribed then came back and selected download only new, and again, 100+ downloads came. I can't keep the podcast because I can't handle the space. Whether Apple or Ted's fault, I don't know, but this is the only podcast I have that does this.

I hate when all old podcasts re download after I have already listened to them all. No I don't want to download 100+ old episodes and thank you for making me take the time to delete them all. Unsubscribed

TED Talks

by I'm Tyler May on Mar 27, 2017
Rating: ★★★★☆

You don't need me to describe it; you know what TEDTalks are. This podcast is great for learning smart things from smart people in audio form. Unfortunately, you may not get some visuals that might be an important part of the experience. But it is convenient to be able to listen to a TEDTalk that you've heard someone mention without having to sit down and watch it. My one gripe is that there are just so many talks to choose from, I would be more interested in a separate podcast that just highlights the best of the best TEDTalks.

Biased Ideas Worth Spreading

by GilzamDude on Jan 11, 2017
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

I've listen to the recent additions to the podcast, and the social statements are always regressive, collectivist, and leftist statements. There are no other ideas shared by TED. Ideas worth spreading should be challenged and diverse, not biased and ideological. Edit: I added a star cause the science talks are fine.

Great podcast

by seatbelts show u care on Jun 08, 2016
Rating: ★★★☆☆

This is a great podcast with a variety of topics covered. Only gave it 3 stars because it drops 13 episodes at a time into my unplayed list. I would prefer one at a time, just because of my OCD with needing to clear out my unplayed list.

Great Radio among LOTS of Great Radio

by msgromit on Mar 05, 2016
Rating: ★★★★☆

TED produces, reproduces, great radio. I listen and love it. The ONLY thing I have to say about the folks at TED is that they are very impressed with themselves. I just want to say there is LOTS of other GREAT radio shows out there. So, yes, great, and no, you don’t stand head and shoulders above the rest. The radio renaissance is blooming and TED is part of it. Thank you!

I love the single topic episodes, but it would be great if they came out on a regular basis or were released closer to their recording dates.

Ted talk more like Indian talk

But jokes aside, 90% of the topics are not interesting or relevant to people living in America. But the 10% are really good, I'm a fan.

Ted Talks is my go-to anytime I want a professional pick-me-up. I love the range of topics covered and the wide span of industries represented. Whether you're looking for advice in the field of health or art, Ted Talks offers great insight.

**Warning**If you listen to these podcasts you WILL become more insightful to different perspectives, think about things a but differently and possibly completely change your views on a topic. I bypassed these podcasts for years because they were too short for my long commutes. Now I realize they are the definition of short but sweet....also check out the Ted Radio Hour Podcast for a "deeper delve" into the topic.

Poor format

by Jimh35747 on Oct 21, 2013
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

I love TED but this podcast is just the audio from TED talks. They frequently refer to their diagrams on screen that you can't see. If you wanna get TED in an audio format try the TED radio hour from NPR.

Audio vs. Video ???

by HoserSmoser on Jun 12, 2011
Rating: ★★★★★

The content here is OUTSTANDING... I have a question:I spend a lot of time in the car and thus watching the videos is harder.I notice the audio podcasts are NOT the same as the Video offerings.For some of them it might not make sense at all to offer an "audio only", but that doesn't seem to account for the (total) difference in content offering. Can someone clue me as to what's going on?Thanks!

Audio should be suited to Listening, not Watching

by Fayzter on Apr 15, 2011
Rating: ★★★☆☆

I love TED Talks and wholeheartedly recommend them. When I discovered the "Audio" talks I assumed that these would be talks that didn't depend on visuals to to be fully enjoyed, which was great news as I often listen in the car on my commute. However, out of the 3 I downloaded - 2 had a disclaimer at the first that said "This TED Talk has powerful visual images that greatly enhance the presentation. Please download our video podcast." Or something like that. Well, that was too bad since I was driving down the highway. Perhaps they could put something in the description of those. Keep audio podcasts for those suited to listening only (Madeleine Albright's was perfect!)
