    Detecting Disease Outbreaks from Internet Traffic | Seth Stephens-Davidowitz

    Detecting Disease Outbreaks from Internet Traffic | Seth Stephens-Davidowitz

    This is closely tied to a 4-hour collaboration between Sam Harris and me, which Sam is posting to his podcast's feed. I strongly recommend that episode too! But it's not "required" for you to get everything out of this fascinating conversation with Seth.

Bedste videnskabs og tech podcast

Super interessant for en hver der interesserer sig for nutiden og fremtiden inden for biotech, computer science, robotics, psykologi og kosmologi.

Podcastserien giver ofte et mere nuanceret billede på disse, ellers meget hypede emner, som tit er udsat for fejlfortolkninger i dagspresse og internetmedier.

The new Tim Ferriss Show (Science edition)

"Meant to bring you to a top-percentile understanding of something imortant" - it certainly delivers! Outstanding information and entertainment.

Rob Reid is an amazing host. The level of preperation that must go into EACH interview is mind-boggling, and the post-production is absolutely first class.

Without a doubt a new house-hold name in any serious podcast-consumers' media diet.
