I'm delighted to launch the latest episode in the third season of Explore Explain, a long-form video and podcast series about data visualisation design.

For this fifth episode it was a pleasure to welcome Valentina D'Efilippo, freelance design director, trainer, speaker, and author. We had a detailed conversation about the data and design story behind Valentina's project 'London Under The Microscope', a unique visualisation-sonification video project portraying the impact of Covid-19 on London.
