A podcast dedicated to all things quantitative, ranging from the relevant to the highly irrelevant. Co-hosts Patrick Curran and Greg Hancock talk about serious statistical topics, but without taking themselves too seriously. Think: CarTalk hi-jacked by the two grumpy old guys from the Muppets, grousing about quantitative methods, statistics, and data analysis, all presented to you with the production value of a 6th grade school project. But in a good way.

Smart, funny, and honest!

Quantitude is an advice podcast for researchers that you’ll actually want to listen to—Greg and Patrick are the kind of professors who make you truly want to come to class. Through questions from listeners and a variety of ridiculous segments, they teach you how to survive grant applications, grad school, writing the methods section for your upcoming manuscript, and research life in general. The Click and Clack of the tech age, Greg and Patrick have a lot of fun, a lot of heart, and aren’t afraid to break down the layers of BS you often find in academia. In a world of infinite podcasts and finite time, this is one you’ll want to make space for.
