    Dan and James discuss the differences between 'talk' and 'action' in scientific reform and why reforms are taking such a long time to be realised. They also chat about whether messy (but correct) code is worse than no code at all, and revisit the grad student who never said "no".

Biosignals and belly laughs

That was a lame title but embodies my love for this podcast. It’s hard to believe that a podcast on reproducible/open science could make you laugh out loud (for real, not when you are texting it to a friend with a completely straight face) but IT DOES. The loving banter between Dan and James makes me want to be their friend. Listen to this podcast, you’re welcome.

Worth listening

An often hilarious, always interesting conversation about science. The discussions about science itself are always fascinating and the guests are great.

The hosts, James and Dan, are pretty good. James has a very “comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable” vibe and Dan... is his handler?

jesus darwin ,

Unprofessional and uninformed

great job, Amy
