TED Audio Collective

TED launches TED Audio Collective for podcasts about ‘ideas worth spreading’

TED has launched the TED Audio Collective to house its growing collection of podcasts. TED, the non-profit American media organization, was conceived in 1984 as a conference where ‘Technology, Entertainment and Design’ converged, but since covers a diverse range of scientific, cultural, political, humanitarian, and academic topics.

TED is also one of the top podcast publishers in the world – TED podcasts get 1.65 million downloads per day across the world! TED Talks Daily, for example, was the second most popular show globally on Spotify in 2020. TED Audio Collective aims to expand upon that foundation with shows co-developed by TED and their speakers as well as those developed and produced independently by inspiring thinkers and creators curated through TED’s lens of ‘ideas worth spreading’.

The TED Audio Collective is a collection of podcasts for the curious. They’re for listeners as excited by psychology and design as science and technology—who want to dig deep into today’s most exciting ideas.

Via TED Partnerships, TED also partners with diverse brands—such as Accenture, Bonobos, Unilever, Hilton, JP Morgan Chase & Co, Lexus, Marriott Hotels, Morgan Stanley, Warby Parker, Verizon, Women Will, and more—for story-driven content based on brand objectives and aligned with its global thought-leadership, editorial process, and podcast hosts.

TED podcasts are available wherever you get your podcasts from, via streaming devices like Google Nest and Amazon Echo, as well as on the TED app.
