“Dear Chris Anderson and the entire team at Ted Interview,
This podcast has truly had an immeasurable impact on my life. Your in-depth analysis, appreciation for nuance, and underlying premise of intuition makes me fall in love with this podcast every time I listen.
Thank you for creating something like this. I have listened to each podcast that you created and now I am in the process of starting over again. I am writing this review with the goal of offering constructive advice.
Some background info about me (so that you can better contextualize my opinions and biases), I am from Trinidad and Tobago, moved to the US when I was 16, and I am fortunate enough to currently study at an Ivy League university.
This podcast has tremendously shaped my perspective on our world. The most impactful was with Johann Hari. I have previously struggled with my mental health and it’s stigma. This talk , I believe, opened the floodgates for me to embark on a truly meaningful journey to find my inner peace.
All of your topics have been profoundly insightful. The structure of the podcast, it’s relaxed nature, and rhythmic flow of questions is amazing. Chris routinely challenges and intelligently explores the respective topic in such a graceful manner. I especially believe Chris’s ability to encourage an insightful conversation around any given topic is unparalleled.
As someone who grew up in a developing world and moved to the US, I especially juxtapose these two respective universes. On this podcast, ample recognition and discourse is given to creating something that is palatable to a person from the developing world.
However, I would love to see this podcast emphasize, blend, and embrace the developing world even more.
I recognize that there may be numerous obstacles to this. However, I believe this bold ask for even more diversity can benefit us all. But something tells me you already know that.
Stay safe during this pandemic! Looking forward to the new episodes.”
