I'm delighted to launch the first season of Explore Explain, a video and podcast series about data visualisation design.
For episode five it was a pleasure to welcome Simon Scarr. We had a detailed conversation about two visualisations he worked on at Reuters, both about plastics: 'Drowning in plastic' and 'A plateful of plastic'.
