NPR's 'Invisibilia' Comes to KBUT Sunday Afternoons at 3

Invisibilia is Latin for the 'invisible things.' In the case of the popular NPR science program, it's a springboard for exploring the unseen forces behind our behavior – our ideas, beliefs, assumptions, and emotions.

The periodic program returns for a fourth season with three new episodes, the first of which airs this Sunday afternoon at 3 on KBUT.

It's part of KBUT's new Sunday Specials. Each week, we'll hand-pick documentaries, series and one-off specials from the world of public radio.

Invisibilia hosts Alix Spiegel and Hanna Rosin are longtime journalists and producers, and veterans of Radiolab, This American Life, and The Atlantic magazine.

Invisibilia airs at 3pm Sunday through April 1 on KBUT.
