KGOU Sunday Radio Matinee
Sundays 12 - 1 p.m.
Public radio has many excellent limited-run programs that are regularly featured in this 'variety' hour: Intelligence Squared U.S., America Abroad, Invisibilia, etc. The Sunday Radio Matinee also plays host to KGOU's own documentary productions and various other special content offerings.
Invisibilia Returns for Season 3 on June 4th!
Meanwhile, this Sunday, May 28th we have another program from the archives to wet your appetite. Join us this Sunday at noon for Invisibilia: The Problem With The Solution (A Season Two Episode Rebroadcast).
In this episode we find that the solution can be the problem. The hour begins with a charming couple from Utah who stumble across a clever fix to their clogged drain problem one day while they are showering together. For them, the impulse to fix the problem leads to a happy adventure into the world of patenting and manufacturing a new product. From there, the hour takes a turn to explore how this very same impulse to fix a problem — the impulse that has led the human species to invent telephones and bicycles and rocket ships — has surprising consequences when it comes to the problem of mental illness.
