Love 'em or hate 'em, you rely on numbers every day. We ask how they confuse us, connect us, & even reveal secrets about us.
Robert ambushes Jad with a question we've all been dying to ask him since he became a father. And we revisit some other ideas from our Morality show to think about a few really big modern-day problems (think global warming and nuclear war).
