Critical Role transcript explorer

This interactive dashboard allows users to explore the language patterns of Critical Role, a popular Dungeons and Dragons vodcast. Users can pick any words or phrases and compare which characters used which, and how frequently. They can also filter by episode or season. The accompanying jupyter notebook describes how the data is processed and how users can recreate the same plots with .txt subtitle files from any show.

Comparing sentiments of the same topic from two different Reddit threads

Reddit has a huge variety of subreddits with different opinions and different topics. I wanted a way to observe/quantify differences between community reactions to the same content. To make this, I compare opinions from two different communities on Marvel's Iron Fist, a netflix show with mixed reviews; one community is Marvel fans, the other a general tv audience.
