Hi everyone, welcome back to the PolicyViz Podcast! This week, I’m pleased to chat with data journalist, designer, and (new) visualization consultant, Maarten Lambrechts. Maarten has built a ton of great projects and analysis, so we dive into his process, his projects, and the balance between static and interactive visualizations.

As always, thanks for your continued support! Please take a moment and rate or review the show on iTunes or your favorite podcast provider so that others can find out about the show.
