Great podcast if you’re interested in the mechanics of polling

The guys cover methodologies & trends & discuss what the differences are between the various polls & methodologies for those polls.

Refreshing and interesting

I find this podcast so refreshing because of the focus on evidence, rather than running with a saleable or compelling narrative, driven by wilful biases. It’s so important right now for us all to be as aware as we can about how to interpret data and how it can be used to draw false conclusions. Evidence, critical thinking and objective truth is more important than ever!

Unique - superb

A brilliant podcast for any politics fan (or straight-up stats nerd).
Top of my listening list whenever a new episode is available - keep up the good work guys!
