TED Radio Hour: What We Fear

TED-RADIO-FEAR

Human beings have a fine-tuned sense of fear. But how do we distinguish between fear and danger? How do we decide which fears are rational and irrational?

In this hour, TED speakers explore what it means to be afraid, and how we calm ourselves down – or don’t – when we’re terrified.
