Data Science and Machine Learning Podcasts

I have been having a break from creating the Quantum Tunnel Podcast. Partly this was because I did not have a suitable replacement to host the material after Apple got rid of MobileMe and sites… Then I just didn’t have that much time. I will pick it up one of these days… Do remind me please.

Nonetheless, my podcast listening has continued and I get my fix from the likes of the excellent RadioLab podcast, Freakonomics and even More or Less. Recently I have started collecting podcasts that talk about data science and machine learning and here are some examples of what has hit my podcast list:

DataStoriesPodcastData Stories

Data Stories is a great chat forum between Enrico Bertini and Moritz Stefaner plus guests; really interesting guests! The main focus is data visualisation but they chat about all sorts of related topics.


Data SkepticThe Data Skeptic

The Data Skeptic ranges from 10 minute conversations between Kyle Polich and his wife Linda, trying to elucidate concepts and areas of interest in statistics, machine learning, probability and others, through to interviews/chats with guests. Worth checking out!


Linear DigressionsLinear Digressions

Covering information about machine learning and data science, this podcast is brought to us by Udacity’s Ben Jaffe and Katie Malone. Weekly episodes will keep you well informed.


Talking MachinesTalking Machines

I really enjoy the conversations that Katherine Gorman and Ryan Adams have regarding topics around machine learning. I like the question and answer session where listeners can send their queries. Interesting guests and always fun to listen to


Data ShowThe O’Reilly Data Show

I recently heard about this podcast and just downloaded the latest episode but have not had a chance to hear it. I assume that the information will be as interesting as other O’Reilly’s outlets. Looking forward to hearing what Ben Lorica has to say!


Partially DerivativePartially Derivative

Why would you not listen to a podcast with such a cool name? Besides, Jonathon Morgan and Chris Albon chat over a beer is a good fun way to hear about the latest and greatest in the data science and technology arena.


Learning MachinesLearning Machines 101

In the best style of a 101 course, this podcast addresses questions such as how do devices that use machine learning work? How can they get in smarter? What does it take to make them more human-like? Listen to it to find out some answers!


This is not an exhaustive list, let me know of your favourite podcasts and why you like them!
