Working in data and analytics can be time consuming, you might not always have time to sit down and read the latest articles. That’s where podcasts come in useful, they don’t require you to sit in one place at a time you can be on the move, on your morning commute or even at home.

Although you might be busy, this is an ever changing industry and it is always important to keep up to date with new technologies and trends in data.

With that in mind here are our top 4 podcasts for those interested in the latest information management and data news.
