Best podcast ever

I listen to this podcast on the way to work and it’s made my commute so great, interesting, educational, inspiring - I don’t want the ride to end.

Guy Raz we miss you!

Honestly without Guy Raz this is not the same TED Radio Hour we knew. No offense to the new host, but you can't simply replace Guy Raz.

My favorite podcast

Hands down one of the best podcasts out there.

My life has changed so much since I came across all this systematically put together knowledge.
I often wonder who was I before this show.

Great job !
