The Tech Tribune staff has compiled a list of the best new tech podcasts released in the last week (as of the time of writing):

“My guest today created a company that I’ve watched from a distance. It’s called Under Canvas and what they do is put up these gorgeous, beautiful tents near national parks that let you be part of nature but without having to go full-blown camping. It was an ecotourism company that was facilitation glamping before glamping was really a thing. She sold that company for $100 million in 2018. I want to find out how she did it. Sarah Dusek is currently the founder of Enygma Ventures, a venture firm that invests in women in Africa.”

“To become a data-driven organization, it takes a major shift in mindset and culture, investments in technology and infrastructure, skills transformation, and clearly evangelizing the usefulness of using data to drive better decision-making.

With all of these levers to scale, many organizations get stuck early in their data transformation journey, not knowing what to prioritize and how. In this episode, Ganes Kesari joins the show to share the frameworks and processes that organizations can follow to become data-driven, measure their data maturity, and win stakeholder support across the organization.

Ganes is Co-Founder and Chief Decision Scientist at Gramener, which helps companies make data-driven decisions through powerful data stories and analytics. He is an expert in data, analytics, organizational strategy, and hands-on execution. Throughout his 20-year career, Ganes has become an internationally-renowned speaker and has been published in Forbes, Entrepreneur, and has become a thought leader in Data Science.

Throughout the episode, we talk about how organizations can scale their data maturity, how to build an effective data science roadmap, how to successfully navigate the skills and people components of data maturity, and much more.”

“What the heck’s going on with FTX. What even is FTX? What’s this FTT thing? And who the heck is SBF?! Ahhhh!!! Plus: Twitter sees more layoffs and ‘Wakanda Forever’ breaks records.”

“The National Labor Relations Board is a federal agency tasked with making sure workers can organize to improve their working conditions, wages or form a union. But the NLRB says some employers are using technology to prevent or discourage workers from doing just that. The agency released a public memo on Oct. 31 saying it plans to protect employees from “intrusive or abusive electronic monitoring and automated management,” practices the NLRB says are increasingly happening as the technology gets better and companies seek more oversight of their workers, especially with more people working remotely. Marketplace’s Kimberly Adams spoke with Jennifer Abruzzo, general counsel for the agency and author of the memo, about some of the new surveillance methods that concern her.”
