Chance en Radiolab: Stochasticity <p><strong>Airs Monday, July 16 at 8:00 p.m.&nbsp; </strong>Stochasticity (a wonderfully slippery and smarty-pants word for randomness), may be at the very foundation of our lives. To understand just how big a role it plays, we look at chance and patterns in sports, lottery tickets, and even the cells in our own body.&nbsp; 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.</p><p> Tue, 17 Jul 2012 01:00:00 +0000 Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich 13603 at Radiolab: Stochasticity
