This all started a number of years back with a statistics course at university. During office hours I was innundated with students needing explanations of various statistical concepts. As I was sitting there explaining linear regression for the umpteenth time, it me struck how saying the same thing over and over again wasn't very efficient - so I decided to make a video. I posted the video to youtube, problem solved. I continued making videos for my students and then unexpectedly starting fielding questions from a much larger community of statistics students that found my videos on youtube. The feedback I received was favorable and so I set about producing more videos focused on solving problems with Python and Excel.
