My favourite video clips. You can subscribe to my YouTube channel.
Newsnight videos aren’t embeddable, it seems, but you may enjoy this four minutes of fun, in which I discuss the latest research on how to see into the future.
I discuss the research in much more detail in my FT article, “How to See Into the Future” – no paywall, so enjoy.
On “More or Less” this week we discuss the ice bucket challenge: are viral memes a good way to get people giving to charity, or does it make us careless about what the charities are doing with the money?

I’d just like to clarify that I an not sitting on the loo – it’s a shower with a seat. Oh, why am I even bothering to try to maintain my dignity?

Prospect Magazine is organising and I am afraid there is a ticket price, but it’s a small venue and there will be drinks laid on. Come along if you like that sort of thing!
If you don’t fancy paying money, here’s a FREE video of me speaking about “How to Prevent Financial Meltdowns”.
I gave this talk at the University of Cambridge on 22 May, as part of the International Year of Statistics, and I am introduced by the wonderful Professor David Spiegelhalter.
