#362 – Seth Stephens-Davidowitz, Data Scientist & Author - You Do Have To Be Willing To Go Where The Data Takes You

50 minutes

In episode 362, we welcome our guest, Seth Stephens-Davidowitz, data scientist and author of Everybody Lies: Big Data, New Data, and What the Internet Can Tell Us About Who We Really Are, which was a New York Times bestseller and an Economist Book of the Year.

In today’s episode, we’re focused on what we can learn from alternative data. We start with Seth’s first book and how mining google search data taught him things about racism, abortion, and yes, even some of our sexual preferences. Then we turn to his upcoming book titled Don’t Trust Your Gut: Using Data to Get What You Really Want in Life and hear what the data says about how to live a better life. Seth walks us through the takeaways for finding a spouse, living healthier, and being happier.

If you’re a data geek like myself, you’ll definitely want to listen to this.

Please enjoy this episode with data-scientist and best-selling author Seth Stephens-Davidowitz.
