Stochasticity

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. And we meet two girls named Laura, whose unlikely meeting seems to defy pure chance.

Lucy

Chimps. Bonobos. Humans. We're all great apes, but that doesn’t mean we're one happy family. This hour of Radiolab: stories of trying to live together. A chimp named Lucy teaches us the ups and downs of growing up human, and a visit to The Great Ape Trust in Des Moines, Iowa highlights some of the basics of bonobo culture (be careful, they bite).

However, some parts of the state are doing better than others. With its strong high-tech sector and rebounding real estate market, the Seacoast is faring well. By contrast, the North Country is challenged with replacing pulp and paper mill jobs lost years before the recession hit.
