Better than TAL, Data-Driven!
Data and the stories of individuals behind that data. This podcast is first-rate journalism and I feel is produced at the same quality as any NPR podcast (e.g. This American Life), but with more interesting content, especially for those that are interested in both the numbers and the phenomena represented by such numbers.
Very well done and thought provoking. I really like the tie of real life to analytics
