Quantum Computing is pretty cool, but how cool is it exactly? I can't answer that, but if you listen to the podcast you'll quickly learn that it lies somewhere between Very Cool and Extremely Cool.

    Peter Johnson & VQE - Episode 18 [Hybrid]

    I had an excellent, thoroughly entertaining, and long chat with Peter Johnson from Zapata Computing. We got to talk a lot about VQE, quantum advantage, and new algorithms that try to squeeze performance out of quantum hardware.

Excellent intermediate-level podcast on quantum computing

I am really enjoying the Quantum Computing Now podcast. The topics are very diverse, interesting, and well presented. It is very difficult to find material at the intermediate level, and this podcast fills that gap perfectly. Keep up the excellent work!
