Thu, Feb 26, 2015 -- 2:00 AM Fearless

What would happen if you could disappear fear? The show hears about the striking (and rare) case of a woman with no fear. The second half of the show explores how the rest of us might "turn off" fear. Invisibilia explores the unseen forces that control human behavior - things like ideas, beliefs, assumptions and thoughts. Co-hosted by Lulu Miller and Alix Spiegel, two women who helped create Radiolab and This American Life, "Invisibilia" interweaves narrative storytelling and fascinating new psychological and brain science, in a way that ultimately makes you see your own life differently.
