Wonderfully Enlightening

As a person who thinks they’re pretty adept at viewing other perspectives I found this series riveting and wildly entertaining! I found each talk to be insightful, thoughtful and heartfelt. My favorite talk was from the inner city AP English teacher. I have never thought about how children growing up in urban poverty might act out because I’m so far removed from the environment. After hearing the talk I couldn’t imagine how frustrating it must be for the children and teachers, I’m so grateful we have people like the speaker in the world to help these kids and as a mom of 5, I took to heart what was said and will apply it to my own children and our lives. I hope there will be more talks soon, I can’t get enough!

Touching Anecdotes

Honest stories from real people, an enjoyable series. Add an experienced narrator and you get a great listen.

What an eye opener!

I love the idea that we get to hear stories the no one would want to share on a TED talk. There are things in life that are just to personal, embarrassing or scary to get up in front of a stage and talk about. These are the story of Sincerely, X!

Burnout

I think this speaker was awfully hard on herself. I am not so convinced she could have talked this patient into staying. A medical provider can only do so much.

Episode 7

I have really enjoyed the first 6 episodes and understand why they were told anonymously. But I don’t see Episode 7 as a fit. It was a nice presentation perfect for the TED stage. I am also a female executive that had similar experiences in the 80’s and 90’s and I take every opportunity to share my stories, experiences and reflections with as many people as possible. Courageous leadership is rare but critical to change. Speak up, own your truth.

Should be more of a story structure

Not a fan of Ted Talks, needs to be more of a story type! This is more like an interview, which isn't as fun.

Fantastic

Thought-provoking and startlingly honest. This series will allow you to explore ideas and viewpoints which are rare to find elsewhere in society.

It takes so long to get to the actual story!

The talks are great and very much worth listening to. it's just that the introduction to each episode is exorbitantly long! you could really cut your introduction down to under a minute and get to the point of letting the speaker give their talk.

Must hear. Poignant real life experiences.

These can be difficult to listen to at times and are touching, at times heartbreaking experiences.

Moving and inspirational stories

A candid and personal view of experiences which highlight the vulnerabilities many of us struggle with.

Disappointing

Didn't really live up to the hype. I found each story interesting but not compelling.
I also found the privileged creaky voice of the narrator profoundly smug and annoying.

very dark undertones

i understand the need for authenticity and vulnerability but there was so much struggle and sadness expressed before any info/lessons/ transformations. it was depressing to listen to it. the wisdom from people was there but not enough in comparison to the darkness of it

Terrible narrator at the start has an awful voice which stops me wanting to listen to the test of the episode
