"More or Less" a podcast that I like more than is normal

"Welcome to more or less the series that frees numbers from abusive situations and releases them into the community to do good work and lead happy lives" - Tim Harford

My favorite podcast at the moment is "More or Less" a podcast from the BBC dealing with the everyday use of numbers and statistics and how we should be looking at them.

Although it might sound nerdy and boring, it is in fact only nerdy. Tim Harford, author of "The Undercover Economist" has a wonderful way of making seemingly boring facts and figures very interesting and memorable.

Well Steve, you are corect in saying that the podcast isnt currently broadcasting on a weekly basis, they are taking a break.

However you will be overjoyed to learn that the BBC have archives of the programs for the last... loooooooooooooong while! put "More or less BBC" into Google and you will have as much More or less as you can take!!!
