Poisonous snakes, lightning strikes, a rogue rock from space. There are plenty of scary things to fret about, but are we burning adrenaline on the right ones? Stepping into the bathtub is more dangerous than flying from a statistical point of view, but no one signs up for “fear of showering” classes.

Find out why we get tripped up by statistics, worry about the wrong things, and how the “intelligence trap” not only leads smart people to make dumb mistakes, but actually causes them to make more.

Guests:

Eric ChudlerResearch associate professor, department of bioengineering, University of Washington, Seattle and co-author of “Worried: Science Investigates Some of Life’s Common Concerns

Lise JohnsonDirector of the Basic Science Curriculum, Rocky Vista University, and co-author of “Worried: Science Investigates Some of Life’s Common Concerns

Willie Turner – Vice President of Operations at the Hiller Aviation Museum in San Carlos, CA

Charles WheelanSenior Lecturer and Policy Fellow, Dartmouth College, and author of “Naked Statistics

David RobsonCommissioning Editor for the BBC and author of “The Intelligence Trap: Why Smart People Make Dumb Mistakes
