Incredible Podcast Series

I took some stats classes back in college, unfortunately, I've forgotten most of what I learned all those years ago. I recently came across Brad's Statistics for the Social Sciences podcast series and I have been so incredibly thankful and appreciative that he could publish his lecture series like this online. Being able to listen to from the comfort of my own home, on a walk, or in the car, such complex topics broken down in such a simple way makes me very fortunate I found this podcast series. I also appreciate how engaging Brad is with his students in the series. You can tell he is passionate about educating his students.

Essential Podcast to Storytelling with Data

As a market research advisor, this stats course is exactly what I needed to develop my data analytic skills.

Although I recently “stumbled” across Dr. Fulton’s podcast, I’m so glad I did and excited to go through the remaining lectures.

Amazing Teacher!

I’m a Clinical Research Scientist and I’ve been listening to Dr. Fulton’s lectures to brush up on my knowledge of statistics. They are quite amazing! I really enjoy how he conveys complex topics in such an understandable manner.

In addition I reached out to Dr. Fulton personally and he was so open to proving additional resources for me related to the course!

Amazing teacher and amazing lectures. Highly recommend!!!
