Invisibilia (Latin for "all the invisible things") explores the intangible forces that shape human behavior -- things like ideas, beliefs, assumptions and emotions.

Northwest Public Radio is proud to present Invisbilia, our newest show from NPR. Invisbilia, hosted by Lulu Miller and Alex Spiegel, who helped create Radiolab and This American Life, journeys deep into the human psyche, looking at our hopes, fears, and the science that shapes them. It takes cutting-edge research and turns it into human stories - stories about the most fundamental human thoughts and feelings.

In its pilot season, Invisbilia will explore many subjects. Among them, the power of expectation, sometimes so strong that it can overcome physical disability. And they'll challenge your assumptions about empathy: does it really bring people closer together? 

The six-episode program begins Sunday, January 11, at 7 p.m. on your News Service of Northwest Public Radio. But if you don't want to wait, this preview is available to stream.
