Over the course of future episodes of this podcast, I’m gonna talk about questions that are interesting to me and questions that you may have thought about too. So we’ll explore a variety of topics, some that will make you laugh, some that will make you cry, some that will even make you think, and some that are, honestly, just about as quirky as I am.

We’ll take a look at everything, from classic questions such as, “What are the odds of being struck by lightning?” “What are the odds of winning the lottery?” “What are the odds of finding life on another planet?” to questions related to topics in the news “What are the odds of contracting West Nile virus?” Questions that may hit home for you, “If you’re unemployed today, what are the odds that you’ll find a job?” “If you’re single, what are the odds that you’ll finally meet that special someone?” “If you’re vacationing in Mexico, what are the odds that you’ll land in the crossfire of a drug cartel?” Even questions from politics, “What are the odds that your candidate will win the upcoming election?” We’ll also step back a little to ask “Do people ever get the math wrong?” “What about beating the odds?” And “What difference do the odds make in the first place?” So join me for the next episode of “What are the Odds?”
