Why can’t I listen to the show on Spotify?
Shankar Vedantam uses science and storytelling to reveal the unconscious patterns that drive human behavior, shape our choices and direct our relationships.
... please stop repeating so many old episodes so often! It is annoying for long time listeners. I also don't get it - older episodes are available still - no need to repeat them.
Es nervt! 😡
Thank you for all the research and effort you pour into this show. Sometimes the information is so dense and interesting that I have to listen to it a couple of times. Shankar’s caring voice and the guests always make it an interesting listen.
It gives an insight on so many different topics. Oftentimes, I don’t have the time to read about all the things I am interested in and your show gives me these nuggets of information and entertainment about a variety of interesting themes. Keep the amazing work up!
This brilliant show has made me broaden my personal horizon. Highly recommended!
Thank you, Shankar! You and your team are doing a terrific job!
Kaum zu glauben: aber wirklich jede Ausgabe ist interessant, sorgfältig gemacht, keinerlei improvisiertes Leerlaufgeschwafel. Und das Englisch ist ziemlich leicht verständlich.
Some episodes at their beginning seem... kind of boring/uninteresting, but suddenly the viewing angle shifts and... all makes sense and I’m hooked!
Great podcasts, but I am not able to play the latest podcast!
I love every episode, I sometimes just listen back to old ones because I am all caught up. It is always interesting, Shankar has a great sense of humor, fantastic questions and insights and just seems like the most likeable guy in the world. I love the way he speaks the most beautiful English with his lovely accent.
I listen to a lot of politics podcasts and this one is a welcome change. Sometimes you just don't want to hear that stuff anymore, right?!
This is the best podcast there is. Thank you!
Of all the podcasts I listen to, Hidden Brain is the one that most sticks with me and makes me reflect upon myself and others. It is inspiring and enlightening. Thank you, Shankar and everyone else involved in its production!
Thank you Shankar and team for this podcast. It sets such a high standard on content, interview skills and storyline. I love the last part on unsung heroes. Best podcast out there!
I have never started listening to an episode and decided to skip it. It is always an interesting view into other people’s minds that help me think about how things affect me.
Great podcast. Very calming voice of the host. He asks the right questions and summarizes content. Good job.
Love this podcast and its host! It’s benn tremendously fascinating, so many great stories and insights into what it means to be human - absolutely engaging science reporting!
Thank you so much for producing such a well researched, well spoken and relevant content! I love your podcast and already suggested to a lot of my friends. Highly recommended! Good job, guys!
I love the evenhanded spirit of inquiry in this podcast- the non judge mental observations, the underlying joy in learning & discovering & the ability to go deep into sometimes uncomfortable questions without creating pain. I lean so much . You expand my world, my understanding of others, and of many new & evolving developments in our world. One of the best parts is the singing of thanks to unsung hero’s at the end of each episode
Love it so much! Every episode is so informative. I especially enjoy how Shankar Vedantam differentiates all the human perspectives and motives..
I love Hidden Brain! It’s the first podcast that has me truly hooked. I have told dozens of friends about it and it’s become main topic of informed discussion at our social sinners. It’s so well made, deep, detailed and giving listeners the space to come to their own conclusions. Absolutely fantastic!!!
Interesting topics, well researched, engaging and beautifully edited/produced and engaging. I have now recommended Hidden Brain to countless friends, family and colleagues. Thank you for brightening up my morning commute!
My favourite podcast. Greetings from germany.
One of my all time favorite podcast. great host, awesome topics told in a very interesting way. I highly recommend it!
I’ve been listening to podcasts for years but have never felt so compelled to write a review. The “Tunnel Vision” podcast was forwarded to me in Germany by an Aunt in Hawaii, and resonated so strongly with me. I grew up in a single-parent household and am now managing my own family as a single parent, and scarcity and tunnel vision is my default mindset, not only financially, but with time as well. I too, feel like I cannot afford to sit still, and yet I am only worsening the scarcity by neglecting to set aside time to do so. Thank you so, so much for creating the podcast. Of all the podcasts out there designed to help people improve their lives, this has proven the most powerful to me, literally bringing me to tears at the end. Powerful stuff!!!
Leute die Sendung ist einfach genial wenn englisch kein Hindernis darstellt unbedingt anhören.
Just great, fascinating content prepared in an interesting and entertaining way.
Listening from Germany :)
Thank you for sweetening my daily commute NPR!
Great host, relevant topics and interesting stories!
Excellent podcast for anybody who’s interested in human behavior!
Gehört zu meinen aktuellen Top 3 Englisch-sprachiger Podcasts!
Great Podcast I found through Invisibilia. I listen to it every morning during commute. Well done, Hidden Brain team! Greetings from Aachen, Germany!
Discovered this about a year ago and have been learning lots. Insightful, thought-provoking and well-produced.
This is a podcast I listen to twice, at least. Excellent.
It's a great show to learn about real motivations and biases that drive us and those we might be facing in everyday encounters.
So often, the reports of society-, neuroscience-, psychology- and behavioural science are just so surprisingly counter intuitive...it's very valuable to be reminded of how different some things are then we often think.
I enjoy listening to this podcast very much. Greetings from Germany :)
So interesting and fun
