Episode 8 – A Fool and A Thief with Simon Pampena

Melbourne Stand up mathematician Simon Pampena specialises in explaining complex math to simple minds. In this episode, Nicholas tries to wrap his simple mind around the Monty Hall dilemma, arbitrage and the gambler’s fallacy.

The word from the con man’s dictionary is: ANTI MARTINGALE

In his podcast Scamapalooza Nicholas attempts to separate facts from fraud as he explores the worlds of deception, illusion and swindles with the rogues gallery of writers, magicians, comedians and confidence artists that are his guests.

    Hello Nicholas,
