NPR Unveils New Show 'Invisibilia'
December 9, 2014 at 3:43 PM (PT)
NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO is launching a new six-part show, "INVISIBILIA," looking at "the unseen forces that shape human behavior – ideas, beliefs, assumptions and thoughts." The show, created and hosted by THIS AMERICAN LIFE founding producer ALIX SPIEGEL and RADIOLAB founding producer LULU MILLER and produced by NPR's Science Desk, will air six one-hour episodes in its pilot season, available on-air and as a podcast beginning JANUARY 9th.
Science Desk Senior Supervising Editor ANNE GUDENKAUF said, "Each program is scientifically rigorous, jumping right to the heart of the latest psychological and brain research. ALIX and LULU show us how what scientists know sheds light on what we experience. Invisibilia anchors its examinations with intimate accounts from real people living at the boundaries of our understanding of that new science."
SPIEGEL said, "INVISIBILIA will introduce you to people and ideas you've never encountered before. We profile these very unusual people because their experiences allow us to look more closely at the invisible forces that shape us all – things like fear and empathy."
