Maths at the Movies: Moneyball

In this (Hallowe'en themed?) episode we watch the movie Moneyball.

The story of a young mathematician, played by Jonah Hill, struggling to be heard amongst the angry men that make up baseball. And I think Brad Pitt was in there somewhere as well.
  • Can Jonah produce a winning team by redefining how statistics are used?
  • Why does Thomas keep saying the phrase "dick swinging"?
  • Where did Ben get a hold of those baseball sounds?
All of these questions and more are not answered in our Moneyball podcast.

If you're interested in watching Moneyball you can follow the Amazon link below.
