Host, Creator and Editorial Director
NPR’s How I Built This and TED Radio Hour
Guy Raz is the prolific host, creator, and editorial director of three NPR podcasts, including two of its most popular ones: TED Radio Hour and How I Built This. Both are massive hits, heard by more than 14 million people each month around the world. He is also the creator and co-host of the largest kids podcast, Wow In The World. In 2017, Raz became the first person in the history of podcasting to have three shows in the top 20 on the Apple Podcast charts.

• TED Radio Hour is a co-production of NPR and TED that takes listeners on a journey through the world of ideas. Each week, the world's greatest thinkers, scientists, artists, and visionaries join Raz for an exploration into the common experiences that make us human.

• How I Built This is a podcast about the greatest innovators, entrepreneurs, and idealists, and the stories behind the movements they built. Each episode is a narrative journey marked by triumphs, failures, serendipity, and insight — told by the founders of some of the world's best-known companies and brands. In 2016, it was named one of the top ten podcasts of the year by iTunes, and Inc Magazine called it "the best podcast to take on the new year.”

• Wow in the World is a show about science, wonder, discovery and the amazing things happening in our world. It's for kids ages 5-10 and marks NPR's first-ever foray into children's programming.
