Risk and the Need for a “Cognitive Seatbelt”

This is an example of a standup interview that incorporates graphics in order to visually illustrate complex ideas. In the interview, David Ropeik, the author of the book “How Risky is it, Really,” talks about how humans are¬†cognitively¬†wired to misinterpret risk – and why this is bad for policymaking.

An interview like this can be produced by comprehensively interviewing subjects against a greenscreen background, and then composting graphics behind them. The possibilities for what kind of graphics can be incorporated are endless.
