NIH has a variety of podcasts available in real time and on demand for your viewing pleasure. I have only selected one from the BSSR Lecture Series that I found interesting in order to introduce this to friends of my blog.
Welcome to Rodgers’ “Quiet Revolution”! I had an opportunity to hear Dr. Rodgers at the 2012 ISSH.

ABSTRACT: Mathematical and statistical models (MSM’s) are one type of constrained language structure. There are others, such as poetry and art. As introduction, MSM’s are compared to and contrasted with other constrained language systems. Following, I trace recent developments signaling an epistemological shift from null hypothesis significance testing as the primary organizing statistical framework, to a framework organized around MSM’s. I then place this development into historical perspective, with reference to an earlier and similar epistemological shift in the 17th century. I conclude by presenting a clever palindrome that was never published.
