Podcasts in the TED Audio Collective are for listeners curious about everything from philosophy and psychology to science, technology, business and unexpected pathways in between — all curated through TED’s lens of “ideas worth spreading.”

TED Audio Collective is releasing episodes ad-free and a week early for the new seasons below:

Body Stuff with Dr. Jen Gunter

Ad-free and early listening available now

The “internet’s gynecologist” Dr. Jen Gunter is back with another season focused on the lies we’re told — and sold — about our personal health. We’re exploring pressing questions like “why are we allergic to more stuff than we used to be?” and “is it actually worth it to see a chiropractor?” Get ready to learn how your body REALLY works.

The TED Interview

Ad-free and early listening available now

The TED Interview is your front-row seat to great conversations with the world’s brightest minds. This season, explore the future of intelligence with our new host Steven Johnson as he sits down with author Jennifer Egan, chess grandmaster Garry Kasparov, futurist Jane McGonigal and more. 

Far Flung with Saleem Reshamwala

Ad-free and early listening available now

Far Flung is an immersive, transportive show that travels all over the world to explore ideas that flow from a particular spot on the map. This season we’ll show listeners how a group of migrants flipped street vending back to its outsider roots in Barcelona, take them onboard city buses in Caracas where a team of journalists are fighting misinformation by bringing the news right to the people, take them inside a museum that captures wind from across the globe and a lot more.

And How to Be a Better Human is back on June 27 ad-free

How to Be a Better Human isn’t your average self improvement podcast. Each week, join comedian Chris Duffy in conversation with guests and past TED speakers as they uncover sharp insights and give clear takeaways about how YOU can be a little less terrible.

Listeners will also be able to enjoy uninterrupted listening of TED Talks Daily, TED Business, TED Health, TED Tech, TED Climate and Am I Normal? With Mona Chalabi.
