Podcasts are growing and are becoming a building block to people's self-development. There are podcasts in nearly every sector now, so why not listen to one's surrounding Data Science.
I am going to provide a list of different Data Science related podcasts to help you either grow your interest in the field, increase your current knowledge, or help you develop yourself.
General Data Podcasts
Let’s start with general podcasts that speak on everything data, past present, and future.

When I first typed in Data Science podcasts a few months ago, these guys came up. Data Skeptic launched its podcast in 2014 and concentrates on data science, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and other similar topics. They run in seasons, with content surrounding K-means, Time series, Interpretability, and more.

This podcast explores the processes, tools, and techniques that are driving big data, data science, and AI. Their focus is on emerging data technologies, surrounding topics such as deep learning, end-to-end machine learning, real-time analytics, and more.
This is DataCamp’s own in-house data science podcast. They currently have 85 episodes, covering a range of topics on how to build data cultures and scale their data literacy.

I am a big fan of this podcast, as you can imagine how daunting it is for women to enter a predominantly male industry. This podcast is Hosted exclusively by female data scientists, providing advice for other women and how they can succeed. However, it does have a lot of general data conversations, such as ‘Applying Machine Learning to Solve Global Food Security Challenges’.
Another podcast I would recommend for more career advice around the world of data is SuperDataScience. They cover a range of topics from MLOps, climate change, and legal tech. However, they also include very good content to help people change their careers, what path they should take, and the different courses available.

The Artists of Data Science aired on the 8th of April 2020, and since then there are 245 episodes available. This podcast has a great focus on the self-development of data scientists. Episodes are divided up between interviews and “happy hours”, which is where listeners can ask questions on anything related to data science.
Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence Podcasts
