Join Em Stroud and her Clown Barabra as they chat all things good data with Sam Gilbert.  How can data be a force for good?  What can we do as individuals to look after our data?  How did Sam get interested in data?  What does Barabra think of data and knitting?  How can we change the narrative around our own data and tales of Eastenders and much much more

About Sam Gilbert:

Almost everything we do generates data. Digital technology is now so pervasive that it's very hard to escape its influence, and with that growth comes fear. But whatever the news has told you about data and technology, think again.

Data expert and tech insider Sam Gilbert shows that, actually, this data revolution could be the best thing that ever happened to us. His book Good Data examines the incredible new ways this information explosion is already helping us – whether that's combating inequality, creating jobs, advancing the frontiers of knowledge or protecting us from coronavirus – and explains why the best is yet to come.

Data touches everything, from our biggest hates (online advertising) to our greatest loves (our pets). Sam explores how, if we can embrace the revolution (even the ads), we could all live vastly improved lives.
