Epicenter is a podcast to listen to every week

I love Ben and Harry's take on deep learning. Specfically, the difference between Deep Learning, Machine Learning and AI. Interesting how they are all different but they all kind of work together.

Go deep in many crypto topics

Worst part of this show is its theme music. I find myself skipping past Epicenter in my playlist just to avoid it! Hosts: please find something better.

Ok, review of content now:

I have shared this podcast with friends who just started thinking about “investing” in cryptocurrencies and they have been intimidated/overwhelmed by it. But I like the depth! I certainly don’t follow all of it either, but I just soak it in. The robustness of the hosts’ & guests’ mental models as they discuss economics, or cryptography, or game theory, or whatever other niche—it helps give me a solid starting point as I continue my own exploration. I’m fairly new at a company building a blockchain, and I often feel like one of the dumber ones in the room. But when I keep up with Epicenter, I find myself filling in gaps in my coworkers’ knowledge.
