Professional and informative

The thing I like most about this podcast is the professionalism - the host, Kyle, always keep the content professional and impartial, allowing the listener to focus on the science rather than lecturing the listener. The content is also Dell big technically to serve as an introduction to many methods in ML

Great podcast

I also want to leave a five star review to counterbalance the fool who left a one star review because the host has not made a comment about BLM! This is a podcast about machine learning and AI. I’m grateful for this excellent resource and the huge amount of work that obviously goes into it.
