The first show, Thank Your Ass Off, will launch on Monday with A. J. Jacobs, an author and TED speaker who has spoken about trying to thank everyone involved in making his morning coffee and living a year of his life following the Bible as literally as possible. He will be joined by Clubhouse creator and former music industry executive Mir Harris, where the duo will invite guests and other Clubhouse members to express their gratitude for the “unsung heroes” in their lives, as well as engage with listeners to answer questions.
Other shows and TED speakers participating in the Clubhouse partnership will be announced at a later date, the companies said.
A Clubhouse and TED partnership has been imminent, especially since Clubhouse hired TED’s former head of conferences, Kelly Stoetzel, to oversee thought leadership programming in May.
“For nearly forty years TED has brought the world’s preeminent ideas, imaginations and voices to audiences,” Stoetzel said in a statement. “This partnership will bring those minds into a dialogue with the millions of creators who make up the Clubhouse community.”
“TED’s mission has always been to share ideas and foster discussion around them,” Carla Zanoni, TED’s director of audience development, added. “When ideas and people come together to engage and debate, that’s when the real impact happens.”
