Every Monday, we share a TED talk that you should definitely check out. Of course we encourage you to watch more TED talks, but we’ll help you out and select one interesting video a week.

Leave it in the comments or send us an email over at editors(at)thestonedsociety(dot)com and maybe we’ll feature it in our next week’s Weedly Ted Talk.
