An interactive element will not always make a story more interesting to readers or convey the importance of the topic discussed, but it can often be the reason why people spend more time reading, sharing and remembering that story.

This week's guests are:

  • Aleksandra Wisniewska, interactive data journalist, Financial Times

  • Elliot Bentley, graphics editor, The Wall Street Journal
