Sylvia Wenmackers

We've all experienced weird, inexplicable coincidences in our lives, like bumping into a friend in an unexpected place just as you were thinking about them. It can seem like the odds are impossible, but just how unlikely was it? Belgian philosopher of science Sylvia Wenmackers, brings along a bottle of Maaslander Apple Wine to talk about probability, lotteries, coincidence, and how the near impossible happens every day. Recorded live at the London School of Economics when everyone else was out!
