From NPR:

Hidden Brain links research from psychology and neurobiology with findings from economics, anthropology and sociology, among other fields. The goal of Hidden Brain isn’t merely to entertain, but to give you insights to apply at work, at home and throughout your life.

Hidden Brain began as a weekly series on NPR’s Morning Edition and launched as a podcast in September 2015. It became an hour-long radio show in the fall of 2017.

The show has won numerous awards, including a Webby and a Kavli Science Journalism Award from the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
