You may recognize the phrase “TED Talks,” or know of the show “TED Radio Hour” that plays Saturdays at 3:00 pm on 90.7 WMFE…but did you know TED extends into local communities, including Orlando?

TEDx events are independently-run in the spirit of TED, the non-profit devoted to spreading ideas.

The annual TEDxOrlando takes place tomorrow, with a series of short talks from an impressive local roster focused around this year’s topic, “Home.”

TEDxOrlando organizer Alex Rudloff tells 90.7's Nicole Darden Creston how the topic is chosen.
