Good job

Can’t thing of anything negative but you guys are hilarious and it feels like your talking to us not throwing facts at our faces.

Mitja ,

for privileged successful people only

Episodes such as "An alternative to the midlife crisis" etc. are extremely superficial, and do more insult than encouragement, for people who may actually be in the life stage as explained by the speaker, but may not be as lucky as to afford or have any such options as the speaker seems to imply would be easily available to all.

This podcast doesn't sound left- or right- leaning (as some fundamentalist ideological comments seem to denote), it's more that it's for "mainstream privileged successful people" as the only considered audience.

Bad, unfair, and hurtful things happen to people in life, and TED talks are ... just talks, helping not one bit to those who suffer.

Harsh But Fair ,

Unsubscribed after the Ken Chenault infomercial

TED used to be great, but the quality of their speakers has declined greatly in the last few years. They also appear to be completely uncritical of the claims that get presented, even when there are obvious inconsistencies in the guest’s narrative. I honestly should have given up on them when they removed commenting from their site, because it was clear at that point that TED was no longer interested in the exchange of ideas.
