06/23/2022 with Professor Jeffrey Rosenthal

Santa Fe listeners monsoon season is upon us and as excited as we are to finally have blessed rain on our parched land what’s the chance of being Struck by Lightning? Statistician Jeff Rosenthal joins us from the University of Toronto to reassure us. The respected author of numerous professional research papers and two books for the lay person (us), we chat about the weather, election polls, algorithms, gambling and how statistics help to make order out of our lives. His fascinating books are Struck by Lightning: The Curious World of Probabilities and Knock on Wood: Luck, Chance and The Meaning of Everything. Find Jeff and his work at www.probability.ca
