With just a few days to Christmas, it is very clear that we are excited.
On the show this week, we talk research and elections. Maximus Ametorgoh (@maxihere) of PopOut conducted and predicted the outcome of the 2016 elections quite accurately and he shares with us how he did it and also shares some lessons on using social media to conduct credible research.
The usual suspects are not far away and they join in for a great conversation.
