Episode Summary

In this episode Dave and Matt continue their discussion on data storytelling. Good storytelling skills can be used for good and evil. One key is taking audience in mind, being ethical, and being transparent when framing the story.

Storytelling is useful, but it can sometimes take people too far away from the data itself

Moving beyond verbal storytelling there is the same need for these principles to be applied in all forms of communication. This includes email and utilizing things like clear and concise subject lines and writing like a journalist will help ensure effective emails and other written communications.
