We talk to the people that are driving the Modern Data revolution and hear their stories. We interview innovators, big thinkers, and provocateurs, to learn their views about data. We also want to meet the humans behind the data, who can humanize the data by helping us understand the cultural content and intention of the data on human experience. That way we turn this from stories about widgets and gimmicks, and into human stories about the value of data - and also the dangers of misusing it. Sponsored by Sumo Logic

Great Business Podcast
Excellent content and well delivered.
a great resouce if you are interested in data and how its impacting our world today.
A great podcast for your commute to work
So let me preface this by saying I recently have been getting into podcasts so I do not have the largest sample size of podcasts to compare this to.
What a listen!
From the first episode to the last one I listened to this morning, I greatly enjoy listening to this not only because it helps keep me abreast with the ever-changing technology landscape, but also the way it is produced makes for easy listening.
Some podcasts I have heard drone on and on, much like someone that uses too many 5 word sentences in a row; it's monotonous.
This keeps me engaged, curious, and asking questions.
I'll follow up after I'm able to listen to some other podcasts, but so far, keep up the good work!
