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

The Karl Pearson prize for contemporary research contribution is one of the biggest awards in the statistical community. Given out every two years by the International Statistical institute, the award recognizes research published sometime in the last 30 years that has, “profound influence on statistical theory, methodology, practice or applications”. The work of the latest winner is the subject of this episode of Stats and Stories. Rosemary Pennington is joined in studio by regular panelists John Bailer, Chair of Miami's Statistical Department, and Richard Campbell, former Chair of Media, Journalism, and Film. Their guest is Yoav Benjamini, the Nathan and Lily Silver Professor of Applied Statistics at Tel Aviv University. Benjamini is also the 2019 winner of the ISI's Karl Pearson prize for his work developing the concept of the false discovery rate.
