Talking about visualization with John Burn-Murdoch

I keep working on my PhD dissertation, for which my students and myself are interviewing a lot of news graphics professionals. The latest one is Financial Times's John Burn-Murdoch —follow him on Twitter.

I'll release most —if not all— of these interviews, along with the dissertation itself and some quantitative data, by mid-2017 through the project website, (under construction.) However, the conversation with John was so compelling that I asked him if I could make it public right away. Listen to it here, or below.

(Note: A small portion of the chat didn't get recorded. I asked John to make some predictions about the future of visualization, and he mentioned a larger role for annotation, good headlines, etc.)

Here are links to some of the projects John mentioned:
