TED Radio Hour

TED Radio Hour

Every species has its own important role in maintaining nature's balance.

TED Radio Hour debuts. Red River Radio will bring the TED Radio Hour to our listeners every Wednesday Night at 7 p.m. In this story, Everything Is Connected. Every species plays a crucial role in our natural world. But when humans tinker with the equation, a chain reaction can cause entire ecosystems to break down. In this hour, TED speakers explain how everything is connected in nature, with some bold ideas about how we can restore the delicate balance and bring disappearing ecosystems back.

Radiolab debuts. Red River Radio will bring Radiolab to our listeners every Tuesday Night at 7 p.m. In This hour, we spend the entire episode on the story of Kelley and Tom, whose daughter was born at 23 weeks and 6 days, roughly halfway to full term. Their story raises questions that, until recently, no parent had to face...an entire universe of questions about the lines between life and death, reflex and will, and the confusing tug of war between two basic moral touchstones: doing no harm, and doing everything in our power to help.

Music and Inspirational Teachings from the Kabbala

The Jewish New Year: Music and Inspirational Teachings from the Kabbalah

Airs Monday, September 9 at 2 p.m. Music and teachings from the Jewish mystical tradition on the High Holy Days.  Each year, on the evening of the new moon, the beginning of the month of Tishrei in the Jewish lunar calendar, Jewish people around the world begin a period of prayer and self-examination that ends, ten days later, with a twenty-four hour fast. These are the High Holy Days, beginning with Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, and ending with Yom Kippur, the day of atonement. These days are a time to reflect on the past year and to realign life with truth and wisdom, to prepare for a new year's challenges. In this program, Kabbalistic teacher, therapist, and author of "Sacred Therapy," Estelle Frankel and Cantor Richard Kaplan share the depths of insight accumulated by the Jewish mystical tradition of the Kabbalah. They discuss the insights in stories, teachings and music, gathered from that rich tradition.
