With a little luck we’ll see a new video every week, but this is 2020 so I won’t be including dates for any video until it is recorded and edited[1]. Fool me once, etc., etc.

In addition to this core video series, the BI Polar blog includes a set of standalone posts that fall under the broader topic of data culture.


[1] True story: I envisioned this series while on my end-of-year break in late December 2019. The Word document where I have my series outline is titled “12 Days of Data Culture” because I was originally thinking I would record and edit a 12-video series and just release one video per day, starting on December 25th.
