Geeked Out Collecting Podcast – S2 E15

Meet the Data Scientist Keeping the Hobby Honest – Tom from @pancake_analytics


Get ready! This podcast episode I had the pleasure of bringing on Tom from @pancake_analytics and we get super data nerdy. If you know me, you know that I work in data all day every day so bringing on a data scientist was an absolute no brainer. We get into Data Science, Machine Learning, Models, AI and we apply it to hobby collectibles!
