'Come Dunning with me, Kruger!' Whether teaching or dining - how do you know if what you are serving up is actually any good?

How’s that for an unwieldy episode title?

Join Mike, Mark and Paul as they gradually lose the plot, smashing everyone’s favourite bit of cognitive bias, the Dunning Kruger Effect, in to everyone’s favourite bit of Schadenfreude voyeurism TV, Come Dine With Me.

We close out this episode with a song from Plantfoot, and their fabulously titled song Pasta in a Plaster Sauce. Now that I think about it the Dunning Kruger Effect would make a pretty good name for an Indie band.

Tim Harford did a superb episode on the Dunning Kruger effect on his utterly brilliant Cautionary Tales podcast recently as well. If you want to hear more about it, with some cracking case studies and lessons learned then check it out. In fact stop listening to Pedagodzilla immediately and go listen to Cautionary Tales instead. He does a great job of making this kind of thing accessible. I think it’s his full time job. I wonder how much better we could make Pedagodzilla if it was our sole focus? Hmm…
