Hidden Brain is a fascinating podcast that dives into the psychology behind our everyday lives, leaning heavily on social science and the study of human behavior.
But what exactly is the “hidden brain”? It’s a term that host (and EP) Shankar Vedantam created to describe the wide range of influences that manipulate our daily lives- all without our awareness. The podcast aims to draw a line between the mental activities we are aware of and those we are oblivious to, to reveal the unconscious patterns that drive our behavior, shape our choices, and affect our relationships.
