On this specially extended episode, we talk with someone who has one of the coolest job titles ever; Alberto Cairo, Knight Chair of the University of Miami School of Journalism. We had a great conversation prompted by Zen Master Rody Zakovich @RodyZakovich (https://twitter.com/RodyZakovich) on about the line between infographics and data visualisation. There was just so much good content we decided to exetend the episode rather than split it up.
