Especially Big Data
We're pleased to announce the launch of our new podcast: Especially Big Data. While it deals with data both big and small, the podcast explores the many subjects data can document-- which can include everything from what you ate for breakfast this morning to the variability of global ocean currents. In other words, people collect data to track almost everything these days; and we're here to tell you everything it can explain, while also shedding light on everything it leaves out.

In our pilot episode, The truth about grandma's perfume, we dive into the implications and ethics of documentation, and explore whether your daily dose of rhino horn extract should be recorded for “medicinal” or “commercial” purposes. Tune in and tell us what you think.

You can keep up with our latest episodes here.

We’d love to hear what you’re working on, what you’re intrigued by, and what messy data problems we can help you solve. Find us on the web, drop us a line at hello@fathom.info, or subscribe to our newsletter.
