Episode 44: TED Talks

TED logo

Alex Berg joins Jen this week to discuss the nerdy wonders that are TED Talks, the lectures on technology, entertainment, and design given throughout the year at various TED events as well as provided free online. From robotics to ancient relics to defining life, love, and consciousness, there’s a TED talk for just about everyone, though Alex and Jen admittedly geek out primarily over the talks that fall under TED’s “T.” Of course, that doesn’t mean they haven’t also watched talks about porn and sex toys. They are human, after all.
