A recent TED Radio Hour podcast focused on “How Things Spread.”
From their website: “What makes an idea, a brand, or a behavior catch fire? This hour, TED speakers explore the mysteries behind the many things we spread: laughter and sadness, imagination, viruses and viral ideas.”
The podcast episode features Sophie Scott on laughter, Seth Godin on ideas, Bill Gates on global health, Nicholas Christakis on social networks and health, and Yuval Harari on humanity and cooperation.
For anyone interested in social networks and their impact on our health and future, it is definitely worth a listen. Listen now or learn more
