I love podcasts. I would estimate that I listen to between 1 to 6 (yes, 6 ) per day. Consequently, I have opinions on podcasts.
If you’re still listening to podcasts at regular speed, then I’m not sure I can respect you. (I’m kidding… kind of.) I personally, find that 2x speed is right for me–not so fast that I can’t understand anything, but also not slow enough where I can lose interest due to pacing.
Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs) are wonderful resources for people like me who have a passion to learn. In a nutshell, they are college-level courses published by reputable universities and/or instructors for free. Some of the most well-known platforms include Udacity, Coursera, and edX, but you can also find many courses and related materials directly on university websites or other sites such as GitHub. I took advantage of several freely available resources, including MOOCs, while developing my skills as a wannabe data analyst.
