Considerably interesting

It is already one of the first podcasts that I choose to listen to. Taking a sideways view of the stories we hear reported in the news, in the first programme Tim Harford helps us to understand how the class nerd now makes lots of money from just one maths formula and also gets the girls and how to increase the probability that the weather forecast is acurate. The second programme asks how heavy a kilo is and how long is a meter and why people are arguing over the measures of our world. The third and best evaluates the current rush to measure happiness. It all makes more or less sense and I'll certainly listen to the news differently, and I'll hear alot more. It is worth listening if you are interested in economics, the news, or even how the world works.


This is one of the first podcasts I look for each week. However there haven't been any published since January, yet the programme has been on air. Why not?


Numbers don't lie - Tim puts things into simple context by giving us the numbers, which we can then use to form or alter opinions - though Tim gives us the rundown from a logical point of view anyway. Everyone with decision making powers should be able to analyse arguments numerically - and this is how it's done!
