TED Radio Hour
Description: TED Radio Hour does the hard (and sometimes intimidating) work of sorting through the wealth of available TED Talks for you by picking three TED talks all based on a central theme (like gaming or education) and interviews each speaker, playing clips of their TED talk in between.
Bonus: If you hear a subject or speaker you really like, you can go to the TED Radio Hour website and find the whole TED talk.
Quote from “Fixing our Broken Systems”: “If we want to solve problems like hunger, poverty, climate change, global conflict, obesity, I believe we need to aspire to play fames online for at least 21 hours a week by the end of the next decade. No, I’m serious. I am.”

A History of the World in 100 Objects
Description: The British Museum combed through its massive collection of extremely important items and whittled down our entire global history to 100 pieces. From the mummy of Hornedjitef to a solar-powered lamp, the BBC takes listeners on the epic journey of 2 million years of human civilization in 15-minute episodes. Plus, it’s narrated in the venerable British voice of Neil MacGregor, the museum’s director.
Quote: “It [the mummy case] carries all the different kinds of messages across the millennia, signals from the past if you like, that things can communicate to us.”

There’s More to Life than Being Happy
Description: If you’re thinking about embarking on some pursuit of happiness, well, bad news: you’re not going to get there. And that’s because it’s not a destination.
Quote: “‘It is a characteristic of the American culture that, again and again, one is commanded and ordered to ‘be happy.’”
