"You have to be tuned in, in moments of the interview, where you're facing severe creative resistance. . . . That's when the story gets great."

Hanna Rosin and Abby Wendle are the hosts of NPR's hit show, Invisibilia—a show that fuses narrative storytelling with science that will make you see your own life differently. They speak on creating stories to entertain and provoke, and the art of crafting with and without happy endings.
