If you've ever seen a TED Talk online or if you're a podcast geek like me and like listening to them-- there's an event going on next weekend that is totally up your alley. It went on last year and I couldn't make it-- this year, I'm going to try my best.

Want an excuse to check out JUMP downtown Boise as well? That's where TEDx will be held and 14 keynote speakers have been selected to talk about their passions.  TED talks normally aim to inspire and teach-- they cover topics that maybe you've never thought of or simplify something you once thought too "complex" to understand.

After a long application process, speakers slated to talk at Boise's TEDx will be covering a whole gamut of topics.

The event kicks off Saturday, May 5th at 1:00 p.m.
