Invisibilia—a new smart and entertaining series from NPR-- launches a six-episode pilot season on APR beginning 3 PM on Sunday, January 18. Co-hosted by NPR's Alix Spiegel and Lulu Miller who helped create Radiolab and This American Life, Invisibilia delves into a wide array of human behavior, interweaving narrative storytelling with fascinating new psychological and brain science.
In Invisibilia's pilot season, Spiegel and Miller dig deep into our innermost minds — examining our dark, disturbing thoughts and whether those thoughts say anything about who we are, our fears and how they shape our actions, and our need for belonging and how it shapes our identity and fuels our emotions over a lifetime. They will take you into the real-world consequences of our own expectations — sometimes so powerful that they can overcome physical disability — and test your assumptions that empathy brings people closer together. Along the way, you'll encounter fascinating individuals, such as the man who has merged with his computer and a woman who physically feels what others feel.
