Our first English guest is one of our heroes in the field of dataviz. Right after he returned from his sabbatical, we had the opportunity to talk with him. In this episode of the podcast, we have a conversation with Andy Kirk.

We talked with him about:

- how he discovered dataviz as a career,

- his studies (University and a Master in Dataviz!),

- his career (since 2011 a free-lancer as Dataviz specialist),

- his books (Data Visualisation and the Seinfield Chronicles),

- his hobbies (Seinfeld, Liverpool, art and music),

- and of course, about his sabbatical (11 weeks off). We are curious about the insights he gained during this period and his plans for the future.
