In time for your Friday commute, we introduce you to a new segment called Magic Brain. Shankar explores the social science behind magic, and discovers that free choice is sometimes just an illusion.
The first episode of Hidden Brain explores switchtracking: a common pattern in conversations you’ll be accusing your partner of in no time! Plus speedy science, a cup of tea and a song from Adam Cole.
Check out a few minutes of the latest podcast from NPR: Hidden Brain. Shankar Vedantam explores what happens when two people think they are talking about the same thing, but in reality are speeding down separate tracks. It usually doesn’t end well.
