Good. Could be great.

This show is very good, but would be great if the co-host was more science-minded. As it stands, the mini episodes consist of Kyle explaining technical concepts to Linh Da, who is intended to be the layperson and prevent Kyle from getting too jargon-y. She is effective in that capacity.

However, quite a bit of time gets wasted with arguments that would mostly not occur if Kyle were speaking to, say, a trained biologist, or even an attorney. Because it gets pretty annoying, I have to keep my listening of the show fairly sparse.

Great show overall, and the deeper dives with guests are killer.

Could be better if the other host has more science background/intuition

The selected topics and contents are great. However did not enjoy when the cohost was present. Noticed quite a few times when she was not even listening, insisted she was on the right track but clearly not, or gave very irrelevant suggestions. I frankly got carried away and cannot focus on the true meaningful contents of the podcast after the interaction with the cohost started.

DL is not magic

If you spend one episode interviewing the author of certain DL algorithm, doesn’t explain it well, then just declare it as magic, please might as well save all of our time and not do the episode at all!
