With a Side of Knowledge podcast features Oxford’s Harvey Brown

With a Side of Knowledge is a new podcast produced by the Office of the Provost at the University of Notre Dame. It features informal interviews with fascinating scholars and professionals from both Notre Dame and elsewhere that take place over brunch.

In the show’s third episode, “On Probability, Multiverses, and Yogi Berra,” host Ted Fox chatted with Harvey Brown, emeritus professor of philosophy of physics at the University of Oxford, who spent the spring 2018 semester as a residential fellow at the Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study. He explained how trying to define probability—which at first might sound simple—is actually part of the broader complexity of quantum mechanics.
