About this Episode

Believe it or not, we actually went to Russia to find out.

Hopefully you’ll forgive the “on-location” sound quality as we discuss the difficulties of conducting and publishing research in Russia.

We also answer the following questions:

  • What caused the mystery radioactive fog that descended on Europe in 2017?

  • Can machine learning identify autism in babies from merely analysing eye movements?

  • How does Burger King possibly have a 4.5 star google review rating

Jeremy’s Iron is an excuse for two mates to geek out over science, research and publication. It’s a conversation between a biostatistician (Justin Zeltzer) and an orthopaedic surgeon (Justin Bobyn).
