I come across many interesting lectures and interviews of outstanding intellectuals in all fields that have not yet spoken at TED. So I thought it would be worth adding a discussion where we could add these worthwhile Talks to this group even if it isn't specifically a TED Talk. Some of the lecturers might have already given their 20 minute presentation on TED but have other interesting discussions that are worthwhile presenting here as well.  Looking forward to viewing your choices.
