    NETfrix Shorts: Why is Dunbar the loneliest number?

    Dunbar's Number is a well-known concept which states that the number of social ties a person has is about 150.

If it is true, where are all these friends? So who's right - Dunbar or the talkbackers?

Accessible, fun, fascinating!

This podcast is awesome! I’m learning so much, there really isn’t a better resource to learn about network analysis by listening. The podcasts are like lectures, only funny and easy to follow. I hope the content keeps coming!

Super interesting!

Very interesting and explained in a way I can understand. And I’m a sucker for corny jokes.
