We have Nathan Yau with us on the show to talk about his mythical FlowingData blog. Nathan was one of the first people to write a blog about data and visualization, and he is one of the very few who continues to blog virtually every day after more than ten years.

If you want to know what has happened lately in visualization, you can’t go wrong by visiting his site. It’s very comprehensive and never misses a beat.

On the show, we talk about how and why Nathan started FlowingData, the evolution of the blog and visualization over the years, his data visualization projects and membership program, and the secret “sauce” behind his persistence!

Enjoy the show!
