In this episode, we have Alberto Cairo from the University of Miami on the show to talk about his newly announced lecture series on “Trumpery” and uncertainty.
Visualization and statistics promise to help people think and behave more rationally, but as we all know there is much more to fulfilling this promise than just showing “the right” graph.
With Alberto we touch upon many topics including partisanship and rhetoric, visualizing uncertainty and risk, and cognitive biases.
There is of course always much more to say on these topics, but this is a good start!
Enjoy the show.

Hey, we talk about a super lovely project on the show today!
Book illustrator and product designer Abigail Ricarte and data journalist Liv Buli join us to talk about their Kickstarter project, VizKidz, an illustrated book series designed to teach kids about data visualization.
The series features four lovely characters: Penelope Pie, Laney Line, Barnaby Bar, and Bertie Boxplot, each with a specific “personality.”
On the show we talk about how the project started, how they designed the characters, and what it takes to launch a data visualization project on Kickstarter.
If you are interested in buying the book or learning more about the project, check out their website: http://www.vizkidz.rocks/.
