|Once upon a time we told you about TED Talks, the annual conference that brings together the world’s “thought-leaders, movers and shakers.” These talks have been available on iTunes in both audio (iTunes – Feed) and video (iTunes – Feed). And now you can apparently find some on YouTube. Below we highlight a few.
First up, Dan Gilbert, a Harvard psychology professor who recently wrote Stumbling On Happiness, a book that uses psychology, cognitive neuroscience, philosophy and behavioral economics to show how our imagination — our unique ability to predict the future — usually interferes with our basic ability to be happy. Here you get some kernels of thought from the bestselling book, and some insights into why a paraplegic is often as happy as a lottery winner. Good stuff here.
Next, we give you Al Gore doing a little stand-up comedy (no kidding) and speaking on global warming, much as he does in An Inconvenient Truth. No other introduction is needed.
Lastly, we give you Dan Dennett, Director
Be sure to add in the Financial Aid Podcast, too.
Cool idea!!! I’m curious if you have podcasts about eBay and the feedback system?
Technology podcast distributed by NPR and produced in Santa Cruz, CA.
Aren’t all these podcast listed in iTunes? So what is the point of relisting them in this post?
Go to iTunes and see how long it would take you to find these podcasts on your own. You would have to know that they exist in the first place to find them.
The feed listed for the Darden School under University Podcasts-Business Schools is only one series of our podcasts (Darden Speaker Series). The main page of our entire podcast collection is located at http://www.darden.virginia.edu/podcasts.
This is one of the most useful sites I’ve come across. :)
thanks for the same..
OK – I’m the one millionth and one person to log on. This is really exciting, inspiring, and impressive.
What I mean to say is “WOW”
Maybe a separate section on travel podcasts? Huge selection on iTunes available.
