Taking The Numb Out of Numbers

Have you ever wondered how many Americans are married to their cousin? How hairy the average woman of color is? Well! Data journalist Mona Chalabi has the answers to all your weirdest queries, often with whimsical and witty illustrations. Ahmed and Mona talk about how opinion polling has been used against Muslims, double standards of shame across cultures, and her contentious friendship with Sesame Street’s Count von Count.
