The New Numbers Man

August, 1991

The second of two shows which have dealt with a real-life character called “The Numbers Man”. He was a habitual caller to The Larry King radio show, and taping all his calls became a habit of ours. Using these tapes, as well as a lengthy piece on his life and death which NPR aired, and related numbers material and music, we pay homage to one of the strangest intellectual obsessions ever to make a fool of itself. The premise is that God reveals himself to us through numerical signals in everyday statistics. The coincidental depth of this insight is all in the details.
