Welcome back to The PolicyViz Podcast! This week, I speak with Cole Nussbaumer Knaflic, who runs the Storytelling with Data blog and whose new book–Storytelling with Data–was just released. I was fortunate enough to get a copy of the book (before it was officially released) and it’s great! Great tips about focusing your audience’s attention, how to use color, storytelling, and using Gestalt design principles in your data work. Cole and I talk about her approach to visualization, why color is so important, and how organizations can do a better job using and communicating data.

I’m also excited to announce a new sponsor for the show: Juice Analytics.¬†Juice is the company behind Juicebox, a new kind of platform for presenting data, which is designed to deliver easy to read, interactive data applications and dashboards.
