Big think

Lately I’ve been totally loving the Youtube channel Big Think.

Basically it is some of the worlds leading thinkers, scientists, artists, educators et al, giving their views on important questions in a global society. Heavy kind of social, geo techno political issues. Often they are in short soundbites of under 5 minutes. For me it a nice TED alternative for bed time watching on my iPhone, or car listening (also via my iPhone which is streaming it from Youtube) – which makes me wonder is their a Youtube ‘radio’ app – where it streams only the MP3 file? If not there should be one. Gee, I might have to build it myself.

Check out Big Think – it is big awesome. Over.

    Not quite YouTube radio app but I am liking Pocket casts app on iPhone. Streams & downloads podcasts easily & just works. I’m listening to more podcasts in the car now, TEDx has an audio podcast feed.

    I’m a big fan of TED, but always looking for something new and fresh. Big Think has a nice, snappy feel to it – thanks for the tip!
