I had to bolster myself up to finish some mindless computer/busy work yesterday which I was able to do with the help of some podcasts. On the top of my listening list was This American Life’s episode #489 titled No Coincidence, No Story!, dedicated to stories of (you guessed it) coincidences.  There are so many good ones jampacked in this single episode – from simultaneous vomiting to life-changing discoveries.

From the website:

We asked listeners to send us their best coincidence stories, and we got more than 1,300 submissions! There were so many good ones we decided to make a whole show about them. From a chance encounter at a bus station to a romantic dollar bill to a baffling apparition in a college shower stall. See more of your coincidence stories — with photos — here.

Happy listening!
