Episode 220: Confusing confidence intervals

In episode 220, James and Mike delve into the scary evidence zone of statistical significance. We discuss p-values, confidence intervals and in a confusing manner explain why many authors are confused about what is actually quite a simple concept. We also show how misinterpretation leads to inappropriate author conclusions. At the end we decide the podcast overall trended towards marginal significance.
