Stats + Stories: White Hat Bias
WYSO is partnering with Stats and Stories, a podcast produced at Miami University.
Red meat increases your risk of heart disease. A glass of wine is good for you. Carbs are evil and lead to a life of sedentary couch surfing. We’ve all heard these claims about what is good for our health, but what is true? Clinically evaluating these studies that serve as the foundation of these claims is the focus of this episode of Stats and Stories. John Bailer and regular panelist Richard Campbell of Media, Journalism and Film are joined by Dr. David Allison, Dean, distinguished professor and provost professor at Indiana University in Bloomington.
Stats and Stories is a partnership between Miami University's Departments of Statistics and Media, Journalism and Film and the American Statistical Association.
