Statistics without the struggle:  In a new book, Dartmouth professor Charles Wheelan explains how to make sense of the proliferation of data in this digital age….a task he calls “fascinating” and even “fun”!  Wheelan also points out the pitfalls -- how research can be skewed by biased parties. We’ll study up on the state of statistics.

Guest:

Charles Wheelan -  Professor at Dartmouth College, author of the international best-seller Naked Economics and the new Naked Statistics: Stripping the Dread from the Data
