I love ML Street Talk (though it’s a bit complex and goes over my head most times). I enjoy some of Lex’s podcast episodes as well. I discovered CTDS a month back and I’m hooked. The Kaggle stories on CTDS are brilliant.
I highly recommend:
- CTDS Rohan Rao: Rohan Rao | Numbers, Data Science & Kaggle | ASHRAE - Great Energy Predictor 2nd Pos Sol - YouTube
- CTDS Chris Deotte: Chris Deotte | Secrets to Becoming 4x Kaggle Grandmaster | Discussions and Notebooks #1 | CTDS.Show - YouTube
- Lex Fridman with Yoshua Bengio: Yoshua Bengio: Deep Learning | Lex Fridman Podcast #4 - YouTube
CTDS is great. The fact that Sanyam doesn’t have a tea sponsor yet is really a huge loss for the tea industry
I’m obviously biased because I produce it, but here are some of my favorite Gradient Dissent episodes!
Dominik Moritz on visualizations
- Dominik talks about the grammar of graphics, a really insightful and beautiful approach to statistical graphics that I first encountered back in my R and tidyverse days.
Polly Fordyce on microfluidics
- I didn’t know anything about microfluidics before this episode, but it was fascinating to listen to Polly talk about #dropception (cells inside picoliter-scale water droplets inside oil droplets ) and protein sequencing.
Roger Magoulas and DJ Patil on data science
- Data science is so prevalent now that it’s easy to forget that it’s very new (only a few decades!). It was fascinating to hear stories about the early days of data science from two people who helped shaped the field.
Joy of X by Steven Strogatz is an absolute gem.
I am listening to podcasts by Naval. He is such a brilliant man.

Currently this one: The Beginning of Infinity
I really enjoyed this episode of The Robot Brains Podcast about Zipline. They literally slingshot drones to deliver medical supplies and then they automatically return and are yanked from the sky.
I like the diversity of this one and going deeper into the problems and paths to the various discoveries. Microsoft Research Podcast Archives - Microsoft Research
I like listening to the Breaking Math Podcast.
I caught this one live: Emily M. Bender, Professor at UW — Language Models and Linguistics - YouTube - thought it was excellent!
I also really like Emily M. Bender’s episode! I loved the octopus thought experiment and the Thai Library of Congress analogy, I thought they presented the form vs meaning distinction in a very intuitive way
