Stats + Stories: Sifting Through Noisy Data To Find Stories

Mona Chalabi is a Data Editor from the Guardian USA

WYSO is partnering with Stats and Stories, a podcast produced at Miami University.

It seems now more than ever, we're awash in data, news stories abound as reporters trying to make sense of polling data or government statistics or the findings of a research article...all while the very nature of facts is up for debate. Stats + Stories' Rosemary Pennington, joined by John Bailer, chair of Miami's Statistics Department and Richard Campbell, chair of Media Journalism and Film speak with Mona Chalabi, the Data Editor of Guardian U.S. Her job is to sift through the noise to find the stories in all the data.

Stats and Stories is a partnership between Miami University's Departments of Statistics and Media, Journalism and Film and the American Statistical Association. You can follow us on Twitter or iTunes.
