This week we look at the role of debt as a hidden driver of recessions, and how we might create a more stable system. Jun 16, In the past few weeks, the nation has been gripped by protests against police brutality toward black and brown Americans.
The enormous number of demonstrators may be new, but the biases they're protesting are not. In , we looked at research on an alleged form of bias in the justice system. This week, we revisit that story, and explore how public perceptions of rap music may have played a role in the prosecution of a man named Olutosin Oduwole. Jun 13, President Trump said this week that a few "bad apples" were to blame for police killings of black people.
But research suggests that something more complicated is at play — a force that affects everyone in the culture, not just police officers. In this bonus episode, we revisit our look at implicit bias and how a culture of racism can infect us all. Jun 9, If we do a favor for someone we know, we think we've done a good deed.
What we don't tend to ask is: Who have we harmed by treating this person with more kindness than we show toward others? This week, in the second of our two-part series on moral decision-making, we consider how actions that come from a place of love can lead to a more unjust world. Jun 2, When we are asked to make a moral choice, many of us imagine it involves listening to our hearts. To that, philosopher Peter Singer says, "nonsense. This week, we talk with Singer about why this approach is so hard to put into practice, and look at the hard moral choices presented by the COVID pandemic.
May 30, For many of us, that world was one of bustle and activity — marked by scenes of packed restaurants, crowded subway cars, and chaotic playgrounds. In this audio essay, Shankar discusses our wistfulness for the world before the pandemic, and why such nostalgia can actually help to orient us toward the future.
May 26, Many of the reasons for these inequalities reach back to before the pandemic began. This week, we return to a episode that investigates a specific source of racial disparities in medicine and beyond—and considers an uncomfortable solution. May 19, In the months since the spread of the coronavirus, stories of selfishness and exploitation have become all too familiar: people ignoring social distancing guidelines, or even selling medical equipment at inflated prices.
May 14, Commencement ceremonies allow us to take stock of what we've accomplished and where we're headed. This is one of the key opportunities that students and families have lost, as social distancing precautions lead schools to cancel in-person graduations. In this "commencement address," recorded at the request of the public radio program 1A, Shankar Vedantam offers thoughts on what it means to mark such a milestone at this moment, and how graduates can use the disruption caused by the pandemic to think about their lives in new ways.
May 12, In recent months, many of us have become familiar with the sense of fear expressing itself in our bodies. We may feel restless or physically exhausted. At times, we may even have trouble catching our breath.
The deep connection between mind and body that seems so salient now was also at the center of our episode about the placebo effect. This week, we return to this story that asks what placebos might teach us about the nature of healing. May 5, An abundance of choices is a good thing, right?
In the United States, where choice is often equated with freedom and control, the answer tends to be a resounding 'yes. This week, we talk with psychologist Sheena Iyengar about making better decisions, and how she's thinking about the relationship between choices and control during the coronavirus pandemic.
Apr 28, Amidst the confusion and chaos of the COVID pandemic, many of us have sought out a long-trusted lifeline: the local newspaper.

When disaster strikes — from the explosion of a space shuttle to the spread of a deadly virus — we want to know whether we could have avoided catastrophe. Did anyone speak up with concerns about the situation? This week, we revisit a favorite episode about the psychology of warnings, and how we can all become better at predicting the future.
Does power truly flow from the barrel of a gun? Pop culture and conventional history often teach us that violence is the most effective way to produce change. But is that common assumption actually true? Political scientist Erica Chenoweth , who has studied more than years of revolutions and insurrections, says the answer is counterintuitive. Social media sites offer quick and easy ways to share ideas, crack jokes, find old friends. They can make us feel part of something big and wonderful and fast-moving.
And they can come back to haunt us. We've all been in situations where we experience mixed emotions. Maybe you've felt both joy and sadness during a big life decision, such as whether to purchase a home or accept a job offer. Or maybe you've experienced mixed feelings about the ways the COVID pandemic has shaped your life.
Psychologist Naomi Rothman says that while these feelings of ambivalence are uncomfortable, they can also serve us in important ways. Do you ever stop to wonder if the way you see the world is how the world really is? Economist Abhijit Banerjee has spent a lifetime asking himself this question.
His answer: Our world views often don't reflect reality. The only way to get more accurate is to think like a scientist — even when you're not looking through a microscope. Do you ever struggle to communicate with your mom? Or feel like you and your spouse sometimes speak different languages?
In the final episode of our "Mind Reading 2. She shows how our conversational styles can cause unintended conflicts, and what we can do to communicate more effectively with the people in our lives. Turn on the news, and you'll be bombarded with stories of people who lie, cheat, and kill. Most of our public and economic policies take aim at these sorts of people — the wrongdoers and the profiteers. But is there a hidden cost to the rest of us when we put bad actors at the center of our thinking?
Do the measures we put in place to curtail the selfish inadvertently hurt our capacity to do right by others? In the latest in our "Mind Reading 2. He argues that laws written to govern the lawless end up changing the behavior of the lawful — for the worse. If you like the show, don't forget to subscribe to our weekly newsletter. Every week, we'll bring you interesting research on human behavior, along with a brain teaser and a moment of joy. We'll look at one of the most bewildering aspects of how we read minds — in this case, our own.
It's not easy to know how we come across to others, especially when we're meeting people for the first time. Psychologist Erica Boothby says many of us underestimate how much other people actually like us. What happens in our minds when we have to decide what is right and what is wrong? We all self-censor at times. We keep quiet at dinner with our in-laws, or nod passively in a work meeting.
But what happens when we take this deception a step further, and pretend we believe the opposite of what we really feel? In this favorite episode from , economist and political scientist Timur Kuran explains how our personal, professional and political lives are shaped by the fear of what other people think. Witnessing rude behavior — whether it's coming from angry customers berating a store clerk or airline passengers getting into a fistfight — can have long-lasting effects on our minds.
But behavioral scientist Christine Porath says there are ways to shield ourselves from the toxic effects of incivility. Resilience researcher Lucy Hone began to question how we think about grief after a devastating loss in her own life. She shares the techniques she learned to help her cope with tragedy. When disaster strikes — from the explosion of a space shuttle to the spread of a deadly virus — we want to know whether we could have avoided catastrophe. Did anyone speak up with concerns about the situation?

I find myself listening to Hidden Brain once a week as part of my routine. I like that it helps me me improve as a person.
Hidden Brain always gets me thinking deeply and considering different perspectives. It combines interesting research with compelling stories to make for a great listening experience that leaves you wanting to start a conversation with other people. Would be great for a book club! This is in regards to the conspiracy of silence episode.
I get why you focused on DJT…but fast forward to and and the deafening silence at the abject failure that Biden has been. Literally no chance DJT gets away with all the stuff Biden has been given a pass on. Interesting how most media is quiet on the matter. All that is happening now fits the narrative of this episode.
