Using Statistics to impact Elections and a Preschool in Sweden’s attempt to “Eliminate Gender” (Audio Podcast)

A very interesting talk with PhD candidate in statistics Panos Toulis about his work with the Obama campaign and the increasingly quantitative nature of elections in America.  The podcast also discusses an effort to eliminate gender at a Swedish preschool where there are no boys or girls, only “friends.”  Very interesting discussions!
