- Standardized food glops (2) — Sharpless, Katherine E., Jennifer C. Colbert, Robert R. Greenberg, Michele M. Schantz, and Michael J. Welch (2001). ‘Recent Developments in Food-Matrix Reference Materials at NIST.’ Fresenius Journal of Analytic Chemistry 370: 275–78..
- Business lessons from The Wizard of Oz —[this segment is sponsored by Freshbooks] “Impaired Employees: Lessons Learned from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz,” Michael Harvey, Miriam Moellera, Hugh Sloan III and Alex Williams, Business Horizons, vol. 53, no. 6, November-December 2010, Pages 561-570.

The Improbable Research podcast is all about research that makes people LAUGH, then THINK — real research, about anything and everything, from everywhere —research that may be good or bad, important or trivial, valuable or worthless. CBS distributes it, on the CBS Play.it web site, and on iTunes and Spotify).
