Episode 22: Factor Analysis — The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly

Episode 22a

Greg and Patrick are inspired by possibly the greatest Western movie ever filmed as they navigate The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of factor analysis. In addition to arguing that exploratory factor analysis isn’t really exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis isn’t really confirmatory, they adroitly traverse topics including sabbatical do-overs, Corona Academy, leeches, tall ship wine, grad school accomplishments, Roz from Monsters Inc., extraverted statisticians, bread pudding, obituaries, the statistician’s greatest insult, factor analysis parties, playing with knives, and going toward the light.
