Hi everyone! Happy New Year and welcome back to the PolicyViz Podcast! I hope you had a relaxing holiday season.

To kick off 2017, I’m excited to welcome Hadley Wickham to the show to talk about his work with the R programming language, his ‘tidyverse’, and his new book–co-authored with Garrett Grolemund, R for Data Science: Import, Tidy, Transform, Visualize, and Model Data. Hadley and I talk about his work on R, his vision for what a data language looks like, and why he’s such a fan of open source and open data.
