Eight Forty-Eight

Eight Forty-Eight is ...

Eight Forty-Eight is pre-empted this week for season 6 of Radio Lab. Today's episode is Stochasticity, which is another word for randomness. How big a role does randomness play in our lives? Do we live in a world of magic and meaning or is it all just chance and happenstance? To tackle this question, we look at the role chance and randomness play in sports, lottery tickets, and even the cells in our own body.
