Welcome back to the PolicyViz Podcast! On this week’s episode, I’m very pleased to be joined by Mona Chalabi from the Guardian. Mona, if you don’t already know, is involved in a number of exciting projects at the Guardian and elsewhere. From her “Dear Mona” column at FiveThirtyEight to the Vagina Dispatches at the Guardian, Mona uses different data, data visualization, and engagement strategies to communicate data and interact with her readers.

In this week’s episode Mona and I talk about different audience engagement strategies, how to (possibly) communicate data uncertainty, and the (data) fallout from the 2016 Presidential election in the US. Be sure to check out all of Mona’s great work using the links below.

And be sure to check out my new step-by-step Guide to Advanced Data Visualization in Excel 2010. In the 249-page ebook, I show you how to create nearly 20 different graph types in Excel, including a dot plot, slope chart, and Marimekko chart.
