It is an example of how podcast should be

I was not a fan to listen to podcast of any sort. Recently I have been listening to many of podcasts related to data science and yours is by far one of my favourite. You made me not just be addicted to the podcast idea but you made me addicted to yours. Well done, and I am excited to listen to your next one. Your podcast is extremely informative, entertaining, professional, educational and about true data science, thank you a lot. Khaled Wahba
