The Hidden Brain

Shankar Vedantam is the host of NPR’s Hidden Brainpodcast and radio show. His goal is to help people think about the world in new and interesting ways. He is endlessly fascinated by research in fields ranging from psychology and history to sociology and economics.

Before joining NPR in 2011, Vedantam spent 10 years as a reporter at The Washington Post. From 2007 to 2009, he was also a columnist, and wrote the Department of Human Behavior column for the Post.

Vedantam is the author of the non-fiction book, The Hidden Brain: How our Unconscious Minds Elect Presidents, Control Markets, Wage Wars and Save Our Lives. The book, published in 2010, describes how unconscious biases influence people. In 2009-2010, Vedantam served as a fellow at the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University.
