The importance of big data - Maine Fisheries Forum 2018

Podcast of the Maine Fisheries Forum 2018 in full.

Here is the EM session at the Maine Fishermen's Forum in case you missed it. These fishermen understand the intersect between catch accountability and good science. Give them a listen!

What happens when so-called alternative facts are considered just facts and people operate under the impression that the plural of anecdote is indeed data? How do we reach consensus when everyone espouses his or her own data—his or her own facts? 

In the Beyond Data Podcast, Talbot and his guests go where he's often been unwilling to go in his reporting--beyond data.
