Do you make, break, and tinker with things? Are you a seeker of unconventional wisdom? Do you think in algorithms? Then welcome to FTFY, also known as Fixed That For You—a show about solving problems with data and algorithms. When we say Fixed That For You, we don’t mean it in that sometimes-snarky, message board way. We’re talking about the unconventional ways that really clever people tackle big problems, small problems, mysterious problems, even weird problems. And we learn about the iterative process behind inventive solutions to those problems, devised by engineers, software developers, computer scientists, and everyday people who are doing incredible things with data. From preventing human stampedes, to building an artificial pancreas, to finding the perfect romantic partner, to tracking down criminal wildlife poachers, and much more, there’s probably an algorithm for that. Hosted by science journalist, Cara Santa Maria.

Engaging problems

Great show, real-world engineering problems and ingenious solutions

Not just for data geeks

FTFY demonstrates that data is not just about crunching numbers, data is about people and solving real problems.

Data is literally used to save lives by a bright 15 year old boy in India in the first episode. It presented a fascinating story of the immense challenge of devising a way to collect real time data with limited time and resources.

This podcast is not about technical jargon and what's trending. It’s about the power data has to help us solve our problems and the interesting and novel ways we can use it to do so.

Wow, hidden gem.

Randomly found this podcast when I was doing some work on customer integration platforms. This podcast is well worth the listen!
