I’m happy to invite my good friend Andy Cotgreave from Tableau Software to the 25th episode of The PolicyViz Podcast. Andy is the Technical Evangelist at Tableau software and writes and speaks regularly and widely about all things data: how to analyze it, process it, share it, and visualize it. We try to cover the bases in this week’s episode and spend a bunch of time talking about a recent debate about the balance between beautiful and useful data visualization.

Please get in touch! Let me know what you like and don’t like about the show–I continue to play with the format and am working to get the best sound quality as I can (sometimes difficult using Skype). Drop me a line below, on Twitter, or via email. And please rate the show on iTunes and subscribe to the show on your favorite podcast provider.
