Radiolab is so cool. It’s a public radio show you can listen to on your public radio station or online. My dad recently told me about a Radiolab show called Numbers. It originally aired in November 2009. Each show is an hour long and has several segments on a single topic. If you listen to the Numbers show, you’ll first hear a Johnny Cash song, then learn about the innate number sense of infants, and move on to other fascinating topics like Benford’s Law, a surprising observation about the first digits of numbers, and a forensic accountant who uses it to investigate fraud, and on and on. The show is a very human take on numbers. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.
