A Numbers and Narrative interview with Jody Avirgan of FivethirtyEight.com

Summary: Five thirty eight. That is the number of delegates up for grabs in US Presidential elections and the professional home, FiveThirtyEight.com, of guest Jody Avirgan, podcast host and producer for the Nate Silver website that dives into the data for things like sports, news, culture and, of course, politics. Jody is one of the best in the business at finding ways to use data to tell compelling stories, particularly in radio and podcast form. Jody and co-host Joe Flood discuss Jody’s work on NPR, geek out about their mutual love of WNYC radio host Brian Lehrer, talk about the excitement and challenges of telling data stories through 538’s podcast channel, and about Jody’s own project, Ask Roulette.
