Invisibilia

Sundays 6 p.m. & Thursdays Noon (June 19 - August 4)
  • Hosted by Alix Spiegel, Lulu Miller and Hanna Rosin

WKMS welcomes NPR’s Invisibilia back to the programming lineup. This is the second season of the Peabody nominated program about unforeseen forces that shape human behavior.

Invisibilia is Latin for "invisible things." The program interweaves narrative storytelling with scientific research that will ultimately make you see your own life differently.

Invisibilia debuted in January 2015 and since then, station broadcasts and podcast listening have kept Invisibilia in the top ranks of audio storytelling.

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 seven episode run of season two begins on WKMS Thursday, June 16 at noon with a rebroadcast Sunday evenings at 6:00.  Hear an encore presentation of episode one on June 23. The  broadcasts will preempt one hour of Sounds Good (Thursdays) and Fresh Air Weekend (Sundays).
