data crunch

What can be a better way to spend your days listening to interesting bits about data science? Here's a list of the 18 best data science podcasts.

My commute to work every day is roughly one hour (+/- 15 minutes depending on the day). It’s safe to say I cruise through A LOT of podcasts. The subjects I listen to range from True Crime, NFL Fantasy Football, Major League Baseball, and Data Science.

This is my personal ranking/list of the best data science podcasts on SoundCloud, Apple Podcast, and Spotify. I found the descriptions of each podcast to be pretty true to what I would have written myself, which is why you won’t see a whole lot of my own writing in the descriptions (why reinvent the wheel?). Because most, but not all, are available on all three platforms, I decided not to rank the same podcast twice.

Have fun listening to the top 18 data science podcasts!
