Alix Spiegel co-hosts NPR's Invisibilia, a podcast from NPR about the unseen forces that control human behavior - our ideas, beliefs, assumptions and thoughts. Invisibilia interweaves personal stories with fascinating psychological and brain science, in a way that ultimately makes you see your own life differently. Before launching Invisibilia with NPR Science Reporter Lulu Miller in 2015, Alix worked on NPR's Science Desk for 10 years covering psychology and human behavior. She has reported on everything from what it's like to kill another person, to the psychology behind our use of function words like "and", "I", and "so." She began her career in radio in 1995 as one of the founding producers of This American Life. While there, Alix produced her first psychology story, which ultimately led to her focus on human behavior. It was a piece called 81 Words, and it examined the history behind the removal of homosexuality from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. Over the course of her career, Alix has won many awards including a George Foster Peabody Award, a Livingston Award, an Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award, a Scripps Howard National Journalism Award, and a Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award. Originally from Baltimore, Maryland, Alix graduated from Oberlin College. Her work on human behavior has also appeared in The New Yorker magazine and The New York Times.
