Our lives are filled with loops that hurt us, heal us, make us laugh and, sometimes, leave us wanting more. Radiolab investigates the strange things that emerge when something happens, then happens again, and again, and again. Jad and Robert try to explain an inexplicable comedy act, listen to a loop that literally dies in your ear, and they learn about a loop that sent a shudder up the collective spine of mathematicians everywhere.
