Fascinating

This podcast provides a fascinating introductory glimpse into the exploding field of data visualization. Each bite-sized installment in the series boils the issues down to their essentials for the rest of us, who live outside the datavis community. Interviews with articulate, high-level thinkers and rock star designers illuminate their subject with plain-spoken enthusiasm. It's wonderful to catch people at the top of their game, in the act of doing what they love to do, while contributing to the general good.
