Good episode? Give it some love!
Hi Folks! In this episode we talk about food. Food? Yes, food. Moritz recently created the Müsli Ingredient Network, a visualization of ingredient combinations in müsli, and we took this as an opportunity to talk about one of our favorite topics other than visualization, that is, food. But hey … there is a lot to visualize about food! Listen to the episode and you’ll see it.
Visualizations discussed in detail:
