Love it!

Love listening to this podcast. As a newbie to AI and data science, I find it very easy to listen to and learn more about the current AI trends. Also like that they're kept short too, I find with others I tend to switch off after 20 minutes. Thanks for launching this podcast Mark, I look forward to hearing more!
