Linear Digressions — Releases every Monday like clockwork. It’s a 20 minute podcasts about various data science topics. The podcast is co-hosted by one data science manager and one web developer, where the former explains topics to the latter. It has a nice mix basic concepts, recent paper discussions, and data science’s impact on society. Episodes start with a pun.
