I like this podcast

The only data science podcast that educated me and didn’t put me to sleep. It feels like I’m sitting in on a conversation. Not sure why people are so bothered by the speakers use of filler words. This podcast is not a lecture if you’re looking for a lecture take one of Rogers classes, this podcast to me at least serves as an entertaining educational conversation. I have been exposed to plenty of new ideas and more importantly see how data scientists like Hilary and Roger think through things. So like what’s wrong with that? Thanks Hilary and Roger!

The liberal use of the word “like” was too distracting

If the content were more focused, I could have pushed through Hillary’s use of “like” about 20 times per sentence. However, the content was rambling & thin on data science so I couldn’t make it. After listening to the first episode, I thought I would try the latest episode to see if it had improved. Nope. Both hosts still use “like” too much.

Initially promising, actually a bore

The hosts are smart and mostly well informed, but they veer off into topics that are either trivial (who cares about "Hilary's Habits"?) or about which they have nothing significant to contribute (anything about life sciences or biotech). The tone is gossipy, and not in a way that is particularly funny or informative. The little personal obsessions the hosts have can sometimes take up half of the episode, and the data science content is very thin. While it can sometimes be fun to listen to interesting personalities engage in meandering chats with each other, the hosts of NSSD do not have interesting enough personalities to pull this off.
