In the podcast Not So Standard Deviations, Roger Peng, from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and Hilary Parker, of Stitch Fix, talk about data science and data analysis in academia and beyond.

Its flexibility, power, sophistication, and expressiveness have made it an invaluable tool for data scientists around the world.
