This episode is a very special new holiday tradition called “The Year In Data”. I partnered with a fellow data viz renegade and beloved host of the Data Viz Today Podcast!

Alli Torban is an Information Design Consultant in Washington, D.C.and a leading voice in the field of data visualization on her podcast Data Viz Today, which has been downloaded over 100,000 times.

Her work has been featured in the likes of Washingtonian Magazine and Nathan Yau’s Flowing Data, and she’s been published three times in the Data Visualization Society Journal.

And in this episode, Alli and I engage in a “data viz death match” to see which were the most compelling, inspiring, and moving data visualizations of the extraordinary year that was 2020!
