The Guardian’s Science Weekly Podcast feat. statcheck

This week the Guardian’s Science Weekly podcast focuses on statistical malpractice and fraud in science. We talk about the role of statcheck in detecting statistical inconsistencies, and discuss the causes and implications of seemingly innocent rounding errors.

This podcast also offers fascinating insights from consultant anaesthetist John Carlisle about the detection of data fabrication, and president of the Royal Statistical Society David Spiegelhalter about the dangers of statistical malpractice.
