Social science correspondent Shankar Vedantam, who visited Fairbanks in August, hosts this show which helps curious people understand the world – and themselves. Using science and storytelling, Hidden Brain reveals the unconscious patterns that drive human behavior, the biases that shape our choices, and the triggers that direct the course of our relationships.
Our audience takes uncommon pleasure in the world of ideas. Why do mild-mannered people turn into fearsome mama and papa bears? Does the way you park your car say something vital about you? Can unconscious biases keep people from finding interesting jobs? Hidden Brain has the answers to those questions. Tune in on KUAC FM, KUAC online and KUAC TV 9.6.
