Sunday Radio Matinee
Invisibilia: "Flip The Script" (Season 2, Episode 5 of 7)
After Invisibilia launched in January 2015, the podcast quickly climbed the ranks to number one on the iTunes top-ten chart and stayed there. The debut season aired on nearly 350 public radio stations around the country, including KGOU. "The first season of Invisibilia explored how science sheds light on our individual experiences; this season delves into how our lives are entwined, sometimes invisibly, with the larger world," said Anne Gudenkauf, Senior Supervising Editor of NPR's Science Desk. Season 2 of the hit program, produced by NPR's award-winning Science Desk, has a run of seven, one-hour episodes. This week's episode, Flip The Script, explores what happens when people 'flip the script' and meet hostility with warmth. It's a concept called "non complimentary behavior" -- a powerful concept, and very difficult to execute. Alix, Lulu, and Hanna examine three attempts to pull it off, during a robbery, a terrorism crisis and a dating dry spell.
