Understanding science

Studying studies … and Steve Largent

I can take you to the water’s edge, but…

I was interviewed for a podcast where we mostly discussed our Studying Studies series on the site.

It was nice to get a chance to talk about this series. I realize many of you have probably not read these posts, which is understandable since they are not immediately “actionable” the way others might be. However, it is impossible to make intellectual progress in this environment of mass bullshit information without some grounding in the scientific method and its limitations. So…if you find yourself getting frustrated at the barrage of never-ending nonsense you hear about health, you’re gonna have to bite the proverbial bullet, buckle up, and learn how to be your own judge and jury.  I can take you to the water’s edge, but…

Ok, rant over.

Unrelated, I was taking a quick break from something this week and I re-discovered this blast from the past: Steve Largent vs. Mike Harden.

Literally one of my favorite, if not my absolute favorite, NFL clips. The arc of justice is long. And sometimes painful.
