Emily OsterFor people in the economics/applied metrics/data science space esp. but not limited to those who might want to teach it, I highly HIGHLY recommend @MattTaddy new book, out in a week or so.
Emily OsterThanks to @AndrewDEast for having me on his podcast, marking the first time I have done a podcast with anyone in the NFL. First of a trend? You never know, I guess.
Big congrats to Andrew and @ShawnJohnson on impending #babyeast arrival
