In my last post I pointed out the p-value fallacy in an episode of the BBC podcast More or Less. In the post, I tried to explain why this little logical trap is so common, as well as why it is indeed wrong.

I also had the pleasure of speaking with one of the show’s producers on the telephone, and we tried to come up with the best way to explain it on the radio. Check out this week’s episode for the correction, and a nice little explanation of why we have to be particularly careful when interpreting p-values in the scientific literature.
