Great balance…

… of thoughts on Eutopian and dystopian futures. We get a lot of great ideas for Gaia’s Seed, set in 2099, from this podcast.

Cheers

Incredibly informative from a data strategy perspective!

This podcast it so well done! And, as a data strategist myself, I’m a bit obsessed with how well Daniel (and guests) manage to balance clear business objectives with extremely effective data product / project management. The discussion aren’t too techie, nor are they too glossy / salesy. Excellent podcast!
