We have Federica Cocco and John Burn-Murdoch on the show to talk about their new Financial Times visualization series called Data Crunch. The series features Federica and John having a data-driven conversation about some social or economic trend while aided by graphs and charts. It’s a new way of doing data visualization. It’s casual but not trivial. Also, Federica and John draw by hand all the graphs they discuss; which makes it really engaging and fun! We talk about how the series started, what it takes to produce a whole show, the strategies they use to draw the diagrams, and what they have learned in the process.
Do not forget to take a look at the videos! Here is a link to the series: https://www.ft.com/ft-data-crunch.
