98 | Data Sketches with Nadieh Bremer and Shirley Wu

In this episode Moritz meets Nadieh Bremer and Shirley Wu for a face-to-face episode in Berlin.

Nadieh and Shirley recently paired up to create Data Sketches, a twelve-month collaboration. Each month they choose a topic and develop a visualization on their theme.

One nice aspect of the project is that they keep track of their entire development process, including the steps they followed to prepare the data, sketch the ideas, and create the final visualizations.

On the show we talk about the organization of the projects, some favorite visualizations from the year, the partnership between the collaborators, and how they balance Data Sketches with their freelancing work.


We’re collecting listener questions, ideas, and suggestions about Data Stories for our upcoming 100th episode. Leave us a message at +1-413-650-2713 and we may just feature your voice in the podcast!

93 | OddityViz with Valentina D’Efilippo and Miriam Quick

We have designer Valentina D’Efilippo and researcher Miriam Quick on the show to talk about their recent project OddityViz, a series of data visualizations of “Space Oddity,” the famous David Bowie song.

Valentina and Miriam deconstructed “Space Oddity” into multiple data sets to capture different aspects of the song: its narrative, rhythm, melody, and lyrics. Then they used each element to create a a unique data visualization piece.

They printed the visualizations as a series of posters and laser-carved acrylic black discs. Beautiful!

On the show we talk about their background, the process they followed to develop the project, and the events happening around it.

Enjoy the show!

88 | Re-designing Visualizations on #MakeoverMonday with Andy Kriebel and Andy Cotgreave

andysOn the show this week, we have Andy Kriebel, Head Coach at The Information Lab, and Andy Cotgreave, Technical Evangelist at Tableau, to talk about their lovely social web series, #MakeoverMonday.

This is how #MakeoverMonday works, according to Andy and Andy: “Each week we post a link to a chart, and its data, and then you rework the chart. Maybe you retell the story more effectively, or find a new story in the data. We’re curious to see the different approaches you all take. Whether it’s a simple bar chart or an elaborate infographic, we encourage everyone of all skills to partake. Together we can have broader conversations about and with data.

The series has recently gained a lot of traction: they have seen more than 2,800 entries from 470 participants, and will soon complete a whole set of entries for the year.

On the show we talk about how they got started with the project, how the series works, some interesting solutions they have received, and what is coming next.

Enjoy the show!
