Ode to Radio Lab

Radio Lab logo

So satisfying is it to come across a popular delivery of a hard science concept like randomness (a.k.a. “stochasticity“) in so evocative a package as the Radio Lab show. If you haven’t sampled this gem of a program yet, get to it!

Here’s another great episode about Tsuotomu Yamaguchi, a Japanese engineer who managed to survive both of the US atomic bomb strikes in 1945, Little Boy‘s August 6th strike on Hiroshima, and the August 9th detonation of Fatman over Nagasaki, Tsuotomu’s hometown.

(Mr. Tsuotomu apparently lived to the ripe old age of 93, by the bye.)

The National Science Foundation thinks this program is great, too—-or, at least worthy of a nice grant.
