Beyond Data

By Ret Talbot

The Beyond Data Podcast blends investigative journalism and scientific inquiry to tell unresolved stories where anecdote may overwhelm data and the answers are far from clear. Whether those data don’t exist or have been all but obfuscated by “alternative facts,” in each episode, award-winning journalist and science writer Ret Talbot takes a deep dive beyond the data into a complex and often controversial story. By bringing together myriad voices, the Beyond Data Podcast encourages listeners to look at the world in new and often surprising ways with an eye to promoting dialog and informing the choices we make in our daily lives.

Get Nerdy

Ret Talbot is one of my favorite writers and now he’s got a podcast. I can’t wait to hear where Beyond Data takes my ear holes. If you want to be a little smarter and entertained, this is a show for you. Nice work Ret. This is clay from Fish Nerds.

Ret is a smart dude

And fisheries data in particular needs a voice of reason...

Best of the best!

The toadfish episode was my introduction to this podcast & wow!! I’m sold! It was informative, funny, and just the right amount of disgusting! I loved it! The variety of experts called upon to give their take on this amazing fish really gave me a new perspective. I will also be referring to some of the information I gleaned from the podcast when I teach fisheries to my marine science students. Keep up the great work!
