Show Notes

Anthony Haynes writes: In this episode, I interview David Baxter of the University of Alberta on the topic of sponsored reports.

We pay particular attention to reports on gambling, whether sponsored by industry or government.

Amongst the topics we discuss are the career incentives for researchers, readability, the selection of research questions, and changes required.
