Since 2011 NPR Science Correspondent Shankar Vedantam has reported on human behavior and how research in that field helps listeners understand their actions. Before joining NPR, Vedantam was a columnist and reporter for the Washington Post writing a popular “Department of Human Behavior” column. VPM’s Dan Rosenthal sat down recently with Vedantam and ‘picked’ his brain about his popular podcast, HIDDEN BRAIN, his science background, and his interests as a child.

HIDDEN BRAIN with Shankar Vedantam can be heard every Sunday afternoon at 2 on VPM, 88.9.
