This week on The Method Section, Tom explores the reality of coincidences and randomness, and why it is something for scientists to consider. Is it something that we all too often use to explain away seemingly odd things, does it prevent us from looking at things closer and finding their true cause and when does coincidence really come into play? Find out in this episode! Music by: Joakim Karud – https://soundcloud.com/joakimkarud.
