'TED Radio Hour' Host Talks TED

Listeners to the "TED Radio Hour" Saturday afternoons at 2:00 and Thursday nights at 10:00 on KUT will hear a new voice on the show. NPR's Guy Raz takes over as host of the show this month.

KUT’s Jennifer Stayton talked with Raz about the new version of the show. The first episode, “The Unquiet Mind,” airs Saturday on KUT.

At some point, I think everybody, and certainly anybody who thinks about themselves or the world, asks that question: Am I going crazy? Am I crazy, actually? And this is an explanation of that space between madness and sanity, that gray area that many of us dip in and out of over the course of our lives. In this episode we hear from the incredible neurologist Oliver Sacks, who we went and spent a day with in New York, and he talks about hallucinations, and about how a huge percentage of people around the world have them regularly. And thy are not drug-induced and not induced by any kind of prescription drugs, they just happen.
