Smart and fun podcast on causal inference

This podcast is a fun and engaging way to get exposure to current developments and debates in the world of causal inference. While the hosts come from a biostatistics and epidemiology perspective, as do some of the applications discussed, as a political scientist I’d say the show and methods discussed will be of general interest to social scientists. Also has been great on how to think critically about emerging data and findings on COVID.

Great podcast

Big fan of your podcast here north of the border.
Perhaps consider interviewing a clinician scientist, and if you already have my apologies for missing it!
