Actually it's about ethics in data journalism.

In America… A special counsel produced a report on the president’s criminal behavior. Almost no one read it. Instead, they relied on politicians and pundits to interpret it for them. What to make of this?…

Popular as in "popular science" books, Xan. None of them has been a best seller

Sure, but remember that my books wouldn't exist without YOUR papers. Maybe there is a way to write popular books that are also based on original research. That'd be the best of both worlds

It's a valid concern. The other day I tweeted that I was working on my first academic papers, and their being read just by a handful of people has been worrying me. I guess I'm spoiled because I've always written just blog posts and popular books

I feel the same after way fewer years. What's the alternative while still being an academic (which honestly I love)? Happy to learn from other people ( somewhat related to our yesterday's tweet chat).

One of our first studies in disinformation, before we knew what it was, described how a popular technique for spreading conspiracy theories was the using leading questions. They work as a “plausibility shield” for the author who can say they were “just asking questions”.

What other podcast host does a retrospective of the work and analyzes data to figure out what's working and what can be improved, then shares the analysis for transparency and to help others? Basically only . Which is what makes it great.
