Guy Raz is the host, co-creator, and editorial director of three NPR programs, including two of its most popular ones: TED Radio Hour and How I Built This. Both shows are heard by more than 14 million people each month around the world. He is also the creator and co-host of NPR’s first-ever podcast for kids, Wow In The World.
TED Radio Hour is a co-production of NPR and TED that takes listeners on a journey through the world of ideas. Each week, the world’s greatest thinkers, scientists, artists, and visionaries join Raz for an exploration into the common experiences that make us human. The TED Radio Hour asks questions like “Why do we have the capacity to imagine?” “What animates us?” “What does it mean to live in the Anthropocene?” It is also the fastest-growing NPR radio program in history and the third most-downloaded podcast in America.
How I Built This is a podcast about the greatest innovators, entrepreneurs, and idealists, and the stories behind the movements they built. Each episode is a narrative journey marked by triumphs, failures, serendipity, and insight — told by the founders of some of the world’s best-known companies and brands. In 2016, it was named one of the top ten podcasts of the year by iTunes, and Inc Magazine called it “the best podcast to take on the new year.”
