Want some (mostly) good news in your life?
Because of my work I’m frequently asked if there’s any good news in these turbulent and fearful days. Invariably I send them to Ted Radio Hour to realize, and celebrate, the truly good, wonderful and hopeful things people are doing. TRH is a terrific answer and a balm when people are gasping at the news and grasping for something good and positive. Immmense thanks.
Woke fire trash. I’m set to burn my own witch burning kit I bought from Amazon! just setting up my witch burning kit from NPR donate-a-thon.

Once was a great podcast
Now too political and intentionally woke without the interesting conversation, curiosity, or creativity
Informative and entertaining
I’m hooked. Been listening for years now. So many times I couldn’t get out of the car because I was so engulfed in the podcast!
Not just interesting, but life changing
Listening to research from around the world from a multitude of experts of all ages, cultures, languages, and perspectives, I have not only learned how to change my own daily habits for the better but also to: work more effectively with teens in my profession as a social worker, train my dog more impact fully, and understand my own mental illness. I send TEDTalks to family members and friends that result in such interesting conversations and debates and am always looking forward to the next episode!
I disagree with ms parker. she said, when we select these animals/dogs to work with us she mentions herding, etc. but she would be wrong. the truth is that dogs which were wolves in way way back time, actually initiated first contact with humans. during their tough food times they would go around human camps of that day for scraps. that is how the relationship between wolves and humans began and the humans of that time welcomed the wolves which later evolved into domesticated dogs they could then train for working companions but my point is the wolves took the first step towards humans.

NPR is now just state sponsored propaganda. I could never refer this to any lister without feeling guilty on some sort of level.
The Golden Standard
Indispensable culture content that always invokes thought and challenges one to change perceptions.

Manoush + the agenda ruined it
Manoush is the wrong person to take over from Guy and the woke political agenda is too forced it’s affected the quality and added value this once had. Also Manoush’s voice takes away from it.

Repeat episodes too much
I counted that over half the episodes this summer were reruns.
So so good!
I love this podcast so much. The episodes are always interesting and show me new and insightful perspectives. I’ve learned so much from listening to it and there are several episodes I return to again and again. You should absolutely check out this show.
So many lies!
It’s disappointing to see that NPR gives credence to TED talks when so many have been proven to be full of lies and half truths.
I really enjoy this podcast. Manoush Zomerodi interviews some amazing people. I have learned so much about life from this podcast. I love how Manoush phrases her questions to guests. It really motivates my thoughts on the subject. I have been a fan of Manoush for a few years. I discovered her when she did the Zig Zag podcast with Jen Poyant. Looking forward to the next episode! Keep up the good work. I am about to sign up for the plus subscription. Thanks,Todd

Minoush Ruined it
This used to be my absolute favorite podcast. TED is technology, entertainment, design- but it’s never about that anymore. Bring in a new host
Used to love listening to TED podcasts. It has gone completely woke. I refuse to listen to these talks that encourage the spread of lies and propaganda and follow in lockstep with the corrupt government agendas. I miss listening to talks in which I could actually learn something of value and be exposed to people using their skills and knowledge to make the world a better place. TED, you should be ashamed of yourselves.
Tried Many Times. But, Regretfully, No.
1) Voice characteristics are a huge factor for podcasts. I am a woman who tries to support other women. Simply cannot get through most segments with Manoush. Too nasal. Often doesn’t sound sincere. Not a gender issue because there are many many other women hosts whose voices and interactions/reactions I enjoy. 2) I’m happily as woke as can be. With the awful spewing firehose of news for several years now, TED Radio Hour was often a refreshing mostly non-political break. Not anymore. Help! Please return to tech, entertainment, design emphasis that is your name and identity. I am drowning in everything becoming all political all the time.
Can’t listen anymore
There’s nothing Technology Entertainment or Design about this show anymore. There’s no discussion of science or bright new ideas, everything has to have a left political spin to it. An episode titled “DIY”, makes me think it’s about home projects. Nope, it’s about LGBTQ and women in the workforce. It’s unbearable to listen to anymore. Stop catering to the 0.6%, NPR. Byeeeeee
Social justice not TED
Good content but it has turned into social justice content not TED. I’m already inundated with social justice and politics, this podcast used to be a place to come and learn new ideas without also hearing a “message”. Also interviews are sub par. Miss you Guy!
No longer TED
This show has gone completely off topic Nothing to do with Technology, Education and Design like it once was. jUst boring inane B.S.
I used to be such a big fan but not any more. For the last several years this show turned into complete garbage. Each episode is just a compilation of old ones with some propaganda talks. They manage to turn every topic to propaganda talks about whit supremacy, Republican Party and Trump. The can start from research about whales and somehow end up with Trump the worst president 🤷♂️
Still figuring itself out
I can appreciate the new spin that Manoush puts on the pod, but I do think that her episodes could use more information about technology, entertainment and design. There is a way to make episodes about those topics while also putting them into the context of a social justice framework, but it doesnt seem like the newer episodes have figured out how to do both of those at the same time while staying engaging.
Too woke even for a Democrat
I was a listener for years, since 2011. Without Guy TED is just terrible. Too much about, racism, social justice, income inequality, self shaming white people etc… What happened to the science? Get another host and let’s get back to Technology Entertainment Design please. Ted was an escape from politics, not a trap to hold your head underwater in a pool of wokeness.
After Guy Raz left, there was no reason to go on listening. I gave Manoush Zomorody several chances to charm me. Since that never happened, I have unsubscribed.

Trending Wrong Way
Subscribed years ago, and it seems less and less about sharing knowledge and ideas now. I can appreciate hearing about political issues and social issues, but I hear enough of it from other podcast I listen to. Also seems to be less neutrality in a given subject. Miss the good ol’ days with Guy Raz, but nothing personally against Manoush.
Needs New Content
I’ve been following this podcast since the beginning when Guy was hosting. Back then, it was engaging and had regular new content. Over the past 3 years, the show has become my last option since most of the content is repurposed. It’s not bad content, but is redundant for the weekly follower.
A favorite for any day
My go to podcast on any kind of day ☀️Manoush is my favorite podcast host - always so kind and inquisitive with guests. I always learn something I never knew I was missing and leave inspired. Thank you NPR!
I simply adore and hold near and dear to my heart, TED Radio Hour and NPR. I have the deepest gratitude for the content and access to the knowledge, beauty, curiosity, and intrigue. 🙏🏽
It used to be a cool
This used to be a good show but with Raz gone, the show has become so political and woke, is not even funny
Love the podcast, too many re-runs, though

Take two weeks off and quit
I want to do a TED talk on why my TED talk should be the final TED talk.
The best of the best
Hello Good job 👏 Big up to you all This is the best podcast I love it . I listen to it all the time Thanks for the beautiful job you are doing and thanks for the great information giving us . I am really thankful . From Iran Jeff Dariani 🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷
Stimulating authentic radio
Always a surprise in the best possible way! A Sunday afternoon tradition.
Not how it used to with guy raz
The podcast feels like it’s going for a feminists approach now, more women relatable guests and not enough ideas and knowledge
If I were not subscribed in the past I would absolutely not subscribe now. It’s annoying how the new host gasps/has childish reactions when guests say interesting things/reveal their points. I could really do workout the melodramatic reactions to basic statements. It’s also annoying how the host seems to not know much about their guests’ work. Maybe the host is too busy to properly research guests, but it’s been particularly bad recently. Additionally, it’s ridiculous that the host would receive criticism about the way her voice sounds and then get on Twitter to complain about the criticism and frame it as sexism. Unbelievable that criticizing a nasally voice is now sexiest lol.

Long time fan. Awesome every time!
Inspirational podcasts that are teaching me something
Great show on the oceans
I learned about whale poop and how beneficial it is to the oceans. It was but one aspect of the show which enlightened me. Thank you.
I loved hearing Sylvia Earle's voice, recording the oceans as our support system. Loved hearing ways that I can help in my every day life.
Inspiring show- recent show on the health of the oceans makes me want to start my career over helping- and I’m 60!

Thought provoking and engaging
I have always loved TED talks and TEDx talks. Now that I have found Ted Radio Hour I have found my next great love. If your looking for a perplexing smorgasbord of thought engaging material. You have to check out this pod cast. You will love it. I highly recommend this weekly show.

I’m new to these Radio Hour podcasts but I want to complement Manoush Zomorodi for her fast moving style of interaction with her guests, her great questions and intelligence. I thought this was a great one!
This was very interesting. It made me curious about what I can do to stop my brain from declining, because I cannot stop menopause and my hormones from declining. I also wanted to know more about men and how their development/decline is different. Brain waves-how the brain communicates with itself was not explored here. It’s fascinating how there can be a communication gap in the brain waves and the upcoming technology that it changing it! Dive deeper.
Life Stages of the Brain
Thoroughly enjoyed this episode -it takes you through the entire cycle of the development of the brain from new born to senior. It was presented in a comprehensive, clear and “ user friendly” way. Thank you! Excellent work!
TED Radio Hour
Consistently excellent. Ms Zomorodi is smart and warm, connects w TED speakers, and chooses interesting issues, themes, and speakers
When I can’t figure out what to listen to Ted Hour always works. Interesting, astonishing and fascinating episodes constantly.
Just Sorry Now
Without Guy Raz this show has gone downhill. The episodes with him as the host have disappeared from the apply podcast app and were the only ones worth listening to.
Enjoyed listening to the last interview
I would like to suggest to invite Valerie in your next program . She made really good points in her speeches about demonstrations and their role in citizen’s roles in change.
Background music intrusive and annoying!
I can't stand to listen to the podcast anymore. What is with the music already? I love music. But trying to listen and pay attention to a story when these sappy notes keep interrupting is off putting.
