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.

While many of us are passionate about teaching mathematics, we’ve found that more often than not many educators do not leave ourselves enough time, energy, or maybe just aren’t interested in learning about money management and in particular, investing despite how mathematically centered finance is. This episode is a little different in what we norm…
