The friend zone podcast recommended this as a binge worthy listen.... and it is worth our time!
I listened from beginning to end and gained a new perspective and much insight from this podcast. Some episodes made me analyze and question myself deeply and honestly. It took me though a wonderful journey.
I’ve been listening to Invisibilia for over two years! The episodes can’t come out fast enough. Through thought provoking and engaging subject matter, these episode grab onto my attention within the first few seconds, and keep my attention for the entirety of the show. I can’t recommend Invisibilia enough!
Great podcast. Really makes you evaluate your beliefs and behaviour.
I heard many advertisements for this podcast, but I never listened because the concept “explore the hidden forces that drive our world” sounded too vague. However, every episode I’ve listened to manages to pick stories that so perfectly embody an idea or force that shapes our reality. It’s the kind of podcast where a typical episode will change my point of view and leave me thinking about the message of the episode in many interactions I have. It’s truly great. P.S. I listen to a lot of podcasts, and this is the first one that I have come across that is hosted only by women (excluding podcasts specifically about being a woman) so that’s really nice to hear!
I feel like I blasted thru this Podcast and really enjoyed the subject matter and conversations. When I was caught up, it was harder to tune in on a regular basis but still this podcast has held my interest more than most. don’t agree with everything said but sometimes learn so much from someone from another culture or generation that I may not have had the opportunity to come across in life. People have opinions and we are not meant to take on other people’s opinions but we can listen and evaluate for ourselves. I was especially interested in the discussion on empathy and being empathetic when listening to both sides of a story. I think we are learning more about the fact that being an “empath” can have a lot of negative consequences on an individual. It’s a good discussion and I hope you continue it. My favourite episode is the Prayer.
The most recent season seems like a completely different podcast. Is this a badly written parody? Are they pranking us? I really enjoyed the first season and the topics that it explored but the this last season has been so miserable. Two episodes in particular, a very offensive rom com and the end of empathy, were so ridiculous I had to turn them off. It wasn’t that they were offensive. They were the storytelling equivalent of bombing. Don’t read the room Invisibilia. Stay tone deaf. Make the listeners cringe. Nobody is on board. Just so so bad.
Such a great podcast that helps you understand people and situations around you in a new way. Grows my brain & interesting & entertaining!
I love this podcast it covers so many interesting topics, but I wish that the new episodes had less story’s and more science.
I’ve never heard so much vocal fry in one location. Irritating
The first couple seasons of Invisibilia welcomed me into the wonderful world of podcasts and provoked many important conversations between myself and friends who also listened to the show. These early episodes have also stuck with me ever since, forcing me to consider mental health, self-identity, and personal action differently. Thank you for creating this show. Lulu Miller, specifically, was (and occasionally still pops up, and is) my favourite podcast personality. Her voice always makes me smile!
Great show. Excellent journalism, engaging storytelling. Alix & Hannah have ‘très sympa’ personalities.
Fascinating range of topics!
Empathy isn’t acceptance. You also have to trust your gut and stay safe. Lena was being empathetic and (better yet) honest/real about how she felt about ‘Jack’s’ story. Hannah made herself the victim.
A friend told me about this podcast, she shared it in our chronic illness group. I’ve seriously enjoyed listening to all of the episodes. This is a great podcast and very interesting. I laughed when I hear the Bear’s name was Brodie. Hahaha. I’ll be sharing this podcast with others in the land of OZ too. The ads can be a bit much, but the podcast itself is awesome.
Chuck Norris is ALL that AND a bag of chips!
Sometimes interesting, but the America-style dramatisation is patronising and cringey to the point where I just stopped listening.
Invisibilia is easily my all time favourite podcast. No contest. Each episode is so well researched and offers different angles on the subject. It is thought provoking and each story is so beautifully crafted and told in such a mesmerising and eloquent manner. Only complaint? Wishing there were more episodes in each season and not having to wait another year hoping for a new season!!! :)
One of my most favourite podcasts, ivisibillia gives great insight into human thoughts, feelings and behaviour through real stories ❤️

Tried this podcast when it first came out and didn't grab me from the get go, was recommended recently and SO glad I gave it another chance - this last season especially is killer! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Really interesting subjects and stories told in a quality way.
A journo friend of mine recommended this podcast to me last night, saying it's made her a better writer. As a writer also I was intrigued... anyway, I just devoured four in a row and I'm completely hooked. Compelling story telling, and very interesting subjects. Great work, team!
Invisibilia has fallen from being great to being appallingly bad. The latest show lacked any coherence and was genuinely abysmal. GB
Podcasting on another level, massive respect to all who put this together. GB
Great podcast, thought provoking, engaging, varied and really well produced. Couldn’t recommend highly enough. GB
Think how hard physics would be if particles could think.
