HowManyLicksHow many people are having sex at this instant? How many piano tuners are in the city of Chicago? How can we come up with reasonable estimates to questions like these?  On this program, Dr. Aaron Santos discussed how to estimate anything.

  1. Is there a transcript about this ‘estimation’?
    I look forward to the transcript about this ‘estimation’. Thank you!

    • We’ve stopped transcribing most of our interviews. However, if this episode is transcribed, we will let you know. Thanks for listening!
