The reviews are in and the buzz surrounding Hidden Brain is huge! From The Washington Post to New York Magazine, the critics are marveling at the podcast’s engaging content and remarkable success. Host Shankar Vedantam explains patterns in human behavior with social science and research in this weekly podcast.
Vedantam has a trustworthy, professor-like speech, but his tone is always delighted and excited—no matter the news, it’s always conveyed as if it’s the most fascinating thing he’s ever heard. This superpower, the ability to explain a scientific study without sending anyone back to bed, is why Vedantam is perfectly fit for podcast.
Vedantam earnestly wants to implant a little piece of information inside your brain so that the next time you’re at the grocery store, stuck in traffic, or in a meeting, you’re able to remember something that might actually come in a little useful.
In the new NPR program,correspondent Shankar Vedantam connects rigorous science with people’s everyday experiences.
The hype has spread to the masses – Twitter is blowing up with people talking about how much they love Shankar and Hidden Brain!
