Duncan founded Flourish together with Robin Houston in 2016 and since then they made a lot of progress and acquired a large user base. It’s always great to hear about successful data visualization companies! On the show Duncan describes what Flourish is, how it works and how it differs from other data visualization tools. We also talk about the unique playback option Flourish has and the “talkies” feature, which introduces audio and sound elements to add to a visualization. Finally, we also talk about their business model and future trajectories. [Our podcast is fully listener-supported. That’s why you don’t have to listen to ads!

Download: MP3 Audio49 MB MPEG-4 AAC Audio39 MB We have Angela Morelli and Tom Gabriel Johansen to talk about their effort in developing infographics for several reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Creating such reports entails a very complex and orchestrated process that needs to end with a total consensus of all the participating countries. In the show Angela and Tom tell the story of what it takes to generate such reports and handle the complex process of co-designing such important report with a large group of scientists. Angela and Tom also provide a set of lessons learned visualization designers can use. Enjoy the show! [Our podcast is fully listener-supported. That’s why you don’t have to listen to ads!

Download: MP3 Audio42 MB MPEG-4 AAC Audio33 MB We have Marcin Ignac from Variable to talk about Data Art. Marcin and his studio have a very nice mix of data visualization and generative design projects creating stunning visuals for brands such as Nike and IBM. On the show we talk about the scope and unique features of data art, the process the studio follows, the specific set of tools Marcin developed for visual programming and tips to get started with this kind of projects.

Download: MP3 Audio100 MB MPEG-4 AAC Audio78 MB Hi everyone! We are once again at the end of a whole year. After having “end of the year episodes” with other podcasters, going around the world, and chatting with Andy and Robert, we decided to try something different this time: we asked a group of data visualization professionals to send us an audio snippet summarizing what happened in specific areas of the field over the last year. The result is a great multifaceted collage of stories and personalities. See below who we have interviewed and what they talked about. Happy New Year! Thanks so much for listening to the show. We’ll see you in 2020 with a whole set of great new episodes! [Our podcast is fully listener-supported. That’s why you don’t have to listen to ads!

Download: MP3 Audio41 MB MPEG-4 AAC Audio32 MB In this episode we talk about “future interfaces” with David Sheldon-Hicks: interfaces that are developed in futuristic movies. David is the founder and creative director of Territory Studio. They are the people behind the screen design of a lot of iconic movies such as The Martian, Blade Runner and Ex Machina. On the show, we talk about what it takes to develop this kind of interfaces and how they interact with film directors. We also talk about interaction paradigms and classic movies from the past. David also provides a few tips on how to get started in this space. Note: they are hiring! Enjoy the show! [Our podcast is fully listener-supported. That’s why you don’t have to listen to ads!
