175: Defending against the scientific dark arts

Episode 175 · December 7th, 2023 · 38 mins 10 secs

About this Episode

We chat about a recent blogpost from Dorothy Bishop, in which she proposes a Master course that will provide training in fraud detection—what should such a course specifically teach and where would these people work to apply their training? We also discuss whether open science is a cult that has trouble seeing outward.
