Best podcasts on systematic trading

There are a couple of good podcasts in trading. I find this to be the best one that focuses on the systematic aspects of trading. There are a couple other great podcasts as well, but they are not as focused, or too focuses on certain trading styles. Better System Trader does exactly what the title says, and I've learned quite a bit from it.

The best trading podcast out there

Andrew brings on the show great guests each and every time. There is so much valuable information, I regularly listen to old shows to pick up gems I misseed the first time.
