In Episode 6 of Quantitude Greg and Patrick take their very first phone-in question, which seems to confuse both of them as they are on the computer and not the phone. Regardless, they talk with Tessa from the University of Maryland about her question of how to best use modification indices when fitting confirmatory factor models out in the real world. In addition to completely ripping off the Car Talk Guys from NPR, they address The Pod, rusty knives, Applebees, Patrick’s favorite game at the North Carolina State Fair, poking sticks, and 88-year old Irish Pirates. This may or may not be their final show depending upon how litigious the Car Talk Guy lawyers actually are.
