Look closely at almost anything and you’ll find data—lots of it. But when you push past the calculations, what are all those numbers really saying about who we are and what we believe? CNN’s Harry Enten is on a mission to find out. This season on Margins of Error, Harry looks at why belief in ghosts is on the rise, the case for letting states decide whether to acknowledge Daylight Saving Time, and why human composting—not cremation—may be the answer to a climate friendly death.

Love Harry!

I absolutely love the podcasts! The episodes are very entertaining and full of interesting information. I’m a fan of Harry I enjoy watching him on CNN providing viewers with data and stats and he brings that to the podcasts as well. He makes the conversations fun, light and enjoyable. My favorite episode so far is about daylight saving time - it gets me every year! Love! Love! Love!

Sleeping apart

I am a big fan of Cuomo Prime and CNN. I always enjoy when Harry Enten is a guest and provides his information on various subjects. Last evening I was particularly interested in the sleeping separately statistics which led me to listen to the podcast. It has always bothered me that I felt like sleeping separately from my husband was negatively viewed by others. I have had my own room for probably 10 out of the 42 years we’ve been married and it works perfectly. Great podcast! Will continue to tune in!
