Much new insight about the dynamics of supersymmetric theories in three space-time dimensions has been obtained thanks to exact, non-perturbative results for supersymmetry-protected observables, including the so-called supersymmetric partition functions. In this talk, I will discuss new results for the supersymmetric partition function of 3d N=2 gauge theories on any (orientable) Seifert three-manifold. I will explain how all these supersymmetric partition functions (including the familiar three-sphere) are related to each other, and can be thought of as expectation values of some defect line operators in a 3d twisted chiral ring.
