This is a really cool episode of Radiolab that deals with statistics, randomness and happenstance. You know, chance, luck, miracles. At least, perceived miracles and the illusion of destiny. The first act is also a really cool story. In fact, it’s like finding out Santa isn’t real for the first time all over again.
If you listen to this with an open mind, it may prick holes in your worldview. Especially if you say to yourself, I’m not special, I am not the center of the universe, the gears of time and space do not turn with me in mind, and so on.
