Welcome to my 50th episode!
It seems that in general humans are not logical. We are poor reasoners and easily fooled. Misconceptions and misunderstandings of statistics are often at the root of society’s problems with communicating and understanding science.
In this episode I welcome a University curling buddy, Prof. Jeremy Balka to discuss how statistics effects us every day.
Prof. Jeremy Balka is a teaching-focused Associate Professor in the Department of the Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Guelph. He has a YouTube channel on statistics with over 100k subscribers, https://www.jbstatistics.com/
