2021 in data journalism: Scott Klein on how ProPublica does it, plus our favourite projects of the year

The Chicken Checker app from ProPublica

Scott Klein leads the teams at ProPublica that work at the intersection of journalism and technology. He is also co-founder of DocumentCloud, a service that helps news organizations search, manage and present their source documents. He sits on the board of the Muckrock Foundation.

In our latest Data Journalism podcast episode, Scott, Alberto and Simon chat about the state of data journalism in 2021, how ProPublica does it and how journalism is at the forefront of innovation.

We also talked about these projects:

The Atlantic’s Covid tracker

Which birds are jerks

Using old ships logs to record historic weather
