RadioLab on Benfords Law

Originally broadcast in 2009, this podcast describes the fascinating discovery of Benfords Law.  Amazingly, it turns out certain numbers occur more frequently than others, the law prescribes exactly how often a 2 or a 5 can be predicted to occur within a given set of numbers.  Surprisingly, evidence based on Benfords is admissible in a court of law, and has been used to prosecute fraudsters.
