Press Play

TED Radio Hour


Does something serious happen when we play? In this episode, TED speakers describe how all forms of amusement -- tossing a ball to video games -- can make us smarter, saner and more collaborative. Guests include psychologist Jeffrey Mogil, comedian Charlie Todd, psychiatrist Stuart Brown, primatologist Isabel Behncke Izquierdo and game designer Jane McGonigal.
