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

There are things we think of as fundamental building blocks of our society. Some of them are easily quantifiable, and others not so much. Measuring society is the focus of this episode of Stats and Stories. Rosemary Pennington is joined by regular panelists John Bailer, Chair of Miami Statistics Department, and Richard Campbell, former Chair of Media, Journalism and Film. Their is Chaitra Nagaraja, Professor of Strategy and Statistics at Fordham University. She’s also the author of the book Measuring Society.
