Stochasticity

If you know me, you also know that I listen to a lot of podcasts. What ARE podcasts you ask? Think of them as on demand radio shows. What kind of radio shows? The subjects are limitless. It all depends on what interests you. 

Below is a episode from RadioLab, one of my favourite podcast. Give it a listen. I am sure you will like it. 

Stochasticity (a wonderfully slippery and smarty-pants word for randomness), may be at the very foundation of our lives. To understand how big a role it plays, we look at chance and patterns in sports, lottery tickets, and even the cells in our own body. Along the way, we talk to a woman suddenly consumed by a frenzied gambling addiction, meet two friends whose meeting seems to defy pure chance, and take a close look at some very noisy bacteria.
