Love this show!

The hosts are very smart, know a lot about epidemiology, biostatistics, and causal inference, and have a lot of fun! They have very good guests on. Extra props for the focus on “keeping it casual”

JosephWesley ,

Fun, insightful and highly engaging conversations with field experts.

This is a great podcast for people new to causal inference as well as those helping to advance the methods. It’s ‘casual’ and guests are buzzed if they introduce words or concepts that need definition. The hosts interview leaders in the field and the conversations are always fun and insightful. Podcasting at its best.
