Invisibilia Podcast Is Back With A Fifth Season And It’s Better Than Ever

One of my favourite podcasts, Invisibilia, is back with a fifth season and it’s so freaking good. Invisibilia – Latin for invisible things – fuses narrative storytelling with science that will make you see your own life differently. It’s all about the unseeable forces that control human behavior and shape our ideas, beliefs, and assumptions.

Here’s how they describe the new season:

“This moment in our culture can feel fraught. From ‘fake news’ to the opioid crisis, there’s a lot of uncertainty about the future. So this season, Invisibilia helps you cure your pain, discern truth from fiction, friend from foe, and find your true love with conviction. It’s your very own Emotional Survival Guide, featuring stories about brave people fighting at the extremes: a weatherman battling a deadly tornado, teenagers dying of Facebook posts, a woman conducting a bizarre dating experiment and a man who cuts off his finger and feels…. nothing. We can’t make life easier, but we can help it make more sense!”

Listen to the trailer.

Listen to NPR’s Invisiblia podcast now and I highly recommend you go back and listen to them all.

Snap Judgement Podcast: Unforgiven

Episode #612 of Snap Judgement titled ‘Unforgiven’ is one of the best I’ve heard from them. Three stories, each enthralling but if you only have time for one, skip to the last one at 38 min 30 sec called ‘The Silent Twins’. There just has to be a movie in this. If you’re not familiar with Snap Judgement, it’s best described (by them) as storytelling, with a beat, mixing real stories with killer beats to produce cinematic, dramatic, kick-ass radio.

Season 2 of the Invisibilia podcast is due to drop on 17th June so I’m giving you time to get up to speed and listen to season 1. Invisibilia (Latin for invisible things) is about the invisible forces that control human behavior – ideas, beliefs, assumptions and emotions. It interweaves narrative storytelling with scientific research that will ultimately make you see your own life differently. I don’t have a favourite. I found all of them outstanding so start at episode 1 and work your way through all six of them. They are around an hour each. Where will you find the time? Just go to bed an hour earlier and pop your headphones in instead of watching rubbish on TV. Listen, subscribe or find out more here.
