  WYSO is partnering with Stats and Stories, a podcast produced at Miami University.

There is a universe of data available for researchers and journalists to access in order to help people better understand their world. And sometimes that data can lead to big stories with major policy implications. In this episode of Stats and Stories, Rosemary Pennington and regular panelists John Bailer, Chair of Miami Statistics Department and Richard Campbell, Chair of Media, Journalism and Film, are joined by David Banks, Professor of the Practice of Statistics at Duke University. Banks is also a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics and the Royal Statistical Society. He's a former Editor of the Journal of the American Statistical Association and founding Editor of Statistics and Policy.
