The ability to analyse and untangle datasets is a vital skill for journalists in the age of endless information, so this week’s podcast focuses on how to get started in data journalism.

Getting started in data journalism and getting further than the basics can seem like a mountain of programming tools and coding languages, but the experts we spoke to describe how to take the first steps.

  • Paul Bradshaw, online journalist, lecturer and blogger, Help Me Investigate.com
  • Marianne Bouchart, web producer and data journalism projects co-ordinator, Bloomberg News
  • Nicola Hughes, data journalist, Dataminer UK, 2011/12 Knight-Mozilla fellow at the Guardian, soon to join The Times
