Statistics don't have to be scary, in fact you don't even have to do any math to understand the basics! This Episode is a great follow up to Episode 1, where we took a look at misinformation and how to keep false news from spreading. This time, we let two books lead us through how to tell lies from the truth - Calling Bullshit, The Art of Skepticism in a Data-Driven World by Carl T. Bergstrom and Jevin D. West, as well as the book A Field Guide to Lies by Daniel J. Levitin. Join us as we learn how to spot the Bullshit and think for ourselves.
