Big Ideas offers lectures on a variety of thought-provoking topics which range across politics, culture, economics, art history, science.... By nature of its lecture format, pacing and inquisitive approach, it is the antithesis of the prevailing sound-bite television norm. The simple, bold concept is a victory of substance over style.

Customer Reviews

An intellectual's espresso

The depth and variation of Big Ideas is excellent. One week a leading physicist will explore quantum theory, perhaps the next an atheist will argue his perspective on religion. The speakers are always at the top of their field of expertise and nearly always gifted speakers. Each lecture is about an hour, which gives the speaker time to provide ample background and explore the subject. I love these lectures while i fly or work around the house.

Wow what a fall

I loved this program, it was winderful until they started including fslse arguments and logicsl fallicies as part of their "fairness of big ideas". My latest example from them would be the idiot named Bhikhu Parakh. I am not a very smart person which is why I listen to this program. This guy(Bhikhu Parakh) is a dunce compared to me, He makes his own evidence and uses the fact that he said something as a validation of is truth. He argues that it's okay to judge/prosecute people only by their beliefs. He argues(that with simplistic logic) it is okay to murder any women who looks at a man ina ny kind of misconstrude manner. Every arguement by rhis guy is very easily addressed with very basic knowledge. I find it disturbing that Itunes would ever consider listening to this monster. It is okay to do and oppress as you believe? No it is not EVER!
