COVID data journalism special podcast episode

One of John Burn-Murdoch’s COVID visuals

In the latest episode of the pod, we get to grips with COVID19 data and the challenges of reporting on the numbers during a pandemic. 

Financial Times senior visual journalist John Burn-Murdoch explains how he hunts for the key data and talks through what he thinks we will see happening next. 

The Covid Tracking Project’s co-founder Alexis Madrigal talks about how to gather data where there is none — and how misinformation flourishes in a vacuum.

The music that opens this 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.
