Daniel and Jorge were kind enough to let me share an episode with you about John von Neumann. Hope you enjoy it!

John von Neumann made major contributions to multiple fields including computers, physics, mathematics, economics and statistics. He helped design the atomic bomb, created game theory, provided the architecture for the modern computer, pioneered the concept of mutually assured destruction and developed the foundation for quantum physics.

Daniel Whiteson, particle physicist and host of the show Daniel and Jorge Explain the Universe, joins me to describe the significance of von Neumann's work.

For more about his life, Stuff you Missed in History Class did an excellent episode on him.
