Sometime in mid-2016 I was invited to write a script for a TED Ed lesson on superstition. A project of the well-known TED talk organization, TED Ed produces short educational videos and makes them available for free on YouTube and on the TED Ed website.
After passing a few drafts back and forth, this is what came out. I love the final product, but most of the credit goes to the TED Ed editors, the voiceover artist, and the remarkably talented animators. I had a great time working on this.
The YouTube video is below, but, on the TED Ed website (link here), you will find additional background material on superstition, a quiz, and other fun stuff.
