This site publishes short videos of “global thought leaders” offering their takes on the world and its happenings. Watch businessmen, politicians, preachers, and authors share their views. Then, debate and discuss these idea with others.

Here’s how Big Think describes themselves:

“Big Think is a global online forum connecting people and ideas. Through an ever-expanding platform of knowledge content, including in-depth interviews with the world’s leading experts, Big Think is a vital hub for important information to help you function, and succeed, in a rapidly changing world. In keeping with our belief that crucial information should be freely shared, discussed and debated, we have developed a full menu of tools to engage, disseminate, and subscribe to uniquely powerful content.”
