Spotlight on Invisibilia

“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more and fear less.” –Marie Curie

 

Launching in January 2015, Invisibilia is a new NPR program about the invisible forces that control human behavior. Through personal stories and scientific exploration, public radio veterans Alix Spiegel and Lulu Miller will examine the ideas and assumptions that influence how we live and interact with each other.

Invisibilia offers sponsors the opportunity to align with a dynamic new NPR program and connect with highly engaged public radio audiences across platforms, including broadcasts, podcasts and across NPR digital media.
