It’s interesting but it needs more pazaz

I love Ted Talks but....

... I really wish that the Ted Talks were more curated. It would be more beneficial to the average listener if the podcasts were arranged in such a way that if both positions of the discussion topic were played back to back; Or if supporting links could be provided. Or possibly making a disclaimer that the podcast we are listening to is based on Indian, European, or Chinese statistics, etc.

There are a number of presentations that made generalized claims that do not translate Internationally. I understand that these claims are sometimes made to elicit a response in the listener, however I think at times the end result is heavily one sided at best and an « alternate fact » at worst.
