Numbers are all around us, but are they really there? For those of us who are bad at math, here’s a Radio Lab that ponders if we could live in a world without numbers.

Radio Lab Numbers airs Sunday, April 4 at 10 p.m. on AM1370/HD-FM91.5-2.

Radio Lab, now in sixth season, is an experiential investigation program that explores themes and ideas through a patchwork of people, sounds, and stories. In each episode, Radio Lab experiments with sound and style allowing science to fuse with culture and information to sound like music.

Hosted by Jad Abumrad with co-host Robert Krulwich, Radio Lab is designed for listeners who demand skepticism but appreciate wonder; who are curious about the world, but also want to be moved and surprised.
