Invisibilia is Latin for "invisible things." The program explores the unseen forces that shape human behavior -- things like ideas, beliefs, assumptions and emotions -- interweaving narrative storytelling with scientific research that will ultimately make you see your own life differently. The show is co-hosted by a trio of NPR's award-winning journalists, Alix Spiegel, Lulu Miller and Hanna Rosin, who have roots at This American Life, Radiolab and The Atlantic.

In the first season, Invisibilia showed us how science sheds light on what we individually experience; the second season will delve more often into how our lives are entwined, sometimes invisibly, with each other and the larger world.

The one-hour program is a collaboration between the NPR Science Desk, led by Supervising Senior Editor Anne Gudenkauf, and NPR's Programming division. It continues NPR's tradition of reimagining science programing in a way that is approachable and appealing to NPR's core audience and new younger audiences as well.
