The new podcast will be hosted by Gerry Garbulsky, curator of TED’s broader initiative to reach Spanish-speaking audiences, and organizer of the largest TEDx event in the world, TEDxRíodelaPlata in Argentina. The first podcast will premiere at a TED en Español en NYC event in New York City on April 26, a salon-style speaker event.
“TED is passionate about spreading powerful ideas to relevant curious audiences worldwide--and today we have more options than ever to do so,” said Garbulsky. “The TED en Español podcast taps the explosive popularity of podcasts, and is a natural next step in our commitment to making ideas free and accessible to the world’s massive Spanish-speaking community. Our partnership with Univision will combine the strength of the company’s brand equity with TED’s efforts to produce and distribute the best ideas around the world, no matter where you are, no matter what language you speak.”
“Univision is enthusiastic about the collaboration with TED to better serve and empower our community by giving them access to the ideas that are shaping the world, en nuestro idioma, in our language,” said John Buergler, senior vice president, Growth Initiatives for UCI. “Bringing exceptional Spanish-language content to our Uforia platform is one more illustration of the power and scale of our expanding audio strategy.”
