Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau

Unluck is a podcast about chance, probability and luck. Through interviews, music and discussion, Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau explores the contemporary meanings of luck and chance: faith, myth, folklore, language and psychological coping mechanisms. He speaks to people who have been struck by lightning and been in plane crashes, as well as hearing more everyday tales of chance events.
He talks to the psychologist Adam Moore, artist and musician, Jenny Moore, provides a musical re­telling of Stuart Bell’s brushes with bad luck, and the Rhubaba Choir explore the philosophy of Ludwig Wittgenstein, helping us understand the limits of knowledge through a vocal arrangement of the Tractatus Logico­-Philosophicus.
