The Data Skeptic
The Data Skeptic

Description: Data Skeptic takes a different take on how we review data—thanks to some healthy skepticism, listeners come out with unusual information and knowledge. The show alternates between interviews with industry experts, and mini­episodes wherein the host explains Data Science tidbits to his non­data scientist wife. The tone of this show is simultaneously intellectual and a bit off­beat. It’s fun, and easier to follow than highly technical podcasts. If you need a series with nice production quality and clear, friendly radio­voices, this may be the one.

O’Reilly Data Show
OReilly Data Show

Description: One of the biggest perks of being a big name like O’Reilly means access to a lot of important and insightful guest speakers. Rather than just talking about big names like Cloudera, Apache Spark and Google data flow technologies, host Ben Lorica gets to talk with them in person. It can be very technical, but the speakers and topics keep each episode lively. Plus, the usefulness of the information makes it well worth the effort. Hearing from these important people adds a level of inspiration and depth to the entire show that is hard for smaller shows to rival.
