Stories shared on the TED stage are seen and heard by millions around the world. But some ideas can’t be shared in the open -- there are stories that are too risky, painful, or controversial. Sincerely, X provides a space to share powerful ideas anonymously. Stories that deserve to be heard, from people who remain hidden.

TED and Audible debut “Sincerely, X” audio series: Sharing important ideas, anonymously
