Greg Hancock & Patrick Curran
This episode rapidly devolves into a series of pop quiz questions about statistics thrown from Patrick to Greg and back again.
Show Notes

Greg and Patrick plan the episode around one topic, but things take an unexpected turn as the episode rapidly devolves into a series of pop quiz questions thrown from Patrick at Greg and back again. Rules of engagement are negotiated on the spot: without preparation, each person has 90 seconds to respond to a question of the other's choosing, which is in turn graded and argued over. Pop Quiz questions wind up addressing a range of topics that are core to understanding the thoughtful application of statistics within any research application. Bruised but not broken, Greg and Patrick agree that they will meet again in the academic octagon, bringing Pop Quiz back to QPod ... when you least expect it.
