Tim Harford brings you stories of awful human error, tragic catastrophes, daring heists, and hilarious fiascoes. They’ll delight you, scare you, but also make you wiser. Featuring original music and an award-winning cast including Alan Cumming and Malcolm Gladwell. PodClub members should listen to all 8 episodes of the podcast. This event is free and open to the public.
