A short easy to understand podcast about how numbers are used and misused in the media.

One of the most important programs on the BBC's schedules at the moment. Stepping back from the frantic 'news' timeline to take a closer look at the numbers and their validity

Great accurate Info on various topics. One of my favourites. Be aware that you will always question any statistics after this. It also makes it very difficult to avoid correcting others when they make false statements. I can live with that though.

Fantastic podcast, genuinely refreshing take on stats... from people that understand them and don't appear to have any agenda apart from helping us. Great.

Great look at the numbers behind the headlines. They manage to make what could be a dull subject cool and interesting. Should be more programs like this. Keep up the great work.

All the content is great, from the deadly serious to the outright frivolous.
I wish they'd put a little more effort into ensuring content from the Radio 4 broadcast didn't overlap with the shorter World Service broadcast (or at least omit repeats from the RSS feed). But as for the show itself, always engaging and informative. And there are some terrible puns, so big thumbs up!

Some episodes are better, some less.
But usually very good. Checking statistics and numbers from the news in a lightly and entertaining way. Always with interesting findings.
