A series of TED talks and accompanying interviews with the speakers about the theme of "secrets". I've always loved PostSecret, so it was great to hear from founder Frank Warren in his home talking about the founding of the project and how he gets postcards of secrets everyday -- including many that are too deep to share and post online or in his book. The second speaker, Ash Beckham, talked about being secretive in their gender identity.

The last speaker, journalist Glenn Greenwald talks about the right to personal secrets without companies and state surveilling. He argues that personal secrets and need for privacy is a human condition and allows creativity to flourish.
