FTFY: Fixed That For You

FTFY: Fixed That For You

Published by: Segment

9 Episodes | First Released: Nov 26 '18
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.

Data nerd with only 20 min? This is the show for you!

Super insightful case studies of how data can support solutions to various challenges faces in all different industries. Incredibly concise, packaged into a 25 min segment (no pun intended), this will be the new Science Versus (with less generalizations), and hopefully new planet money if it can be more regular!

Love this!

It's so interesting to see how something so technical and big sounding like "big data" could create such simple and elegant solutions. I'm not much of a technical person, so this is a pretty cool way for me to engage with a highly technical topic through my humanities sweet spot.

Fun, fascinating podcast!

It’s one thing to listen about the cool things people do with data, but what I love about this podcast is that you’re taken on a journey through the problem-solving process. Really kickstarts the brain on my way to the office. Keep the episodes coming!
