How to make data journalism for humans

From left to right: Nadieh Bremer, Shirley Wu and Lam Thuy Vo

In the latest episode of the Data Journalism Podcast, we talk to Lam Thuy Vo, a polymath data journalist who works for Buzzfeed and teaches at CUNY.

We discussed her data-driven investigative stories, her quantified self projects, and her interest in providing learning resources for data journalists from underrepresented communities. 

Next, we talked to visualization designers Shirley Wu and Nadieh Bremer about their recent book ‘Data Sketches‘ (and how to avoid working with or for a-holes). Here’s a great example of their work for The Guardian.

The music that opens this second episode is the sound of Covid vaccination rates data from the CDC (listen to the full tune here). You can create your own data tunes with Two Tone.
