Shaking my data phobia

I’m less and less a data phobe thanks to Brian and Malinda! Great content and great perspective on the intersection of tech, business and how it shapes our culture. More please.

Love the content, they are great

I work in data day in and day out, but still learn a ton from this podcast. I think it would be good for anyone interested in data and tech, at any level, because they do a great job of explaining things and giving a great history, so you don’t have to be an expert. They cover important content for people in the industry, as well as just informed consumers.
