Interview with Radiant Solutions Data Scientist: Josh Lipsmeyer

Recently Translating Nerd interviewed Josh Lipsmeyer about the work he does as a Software Engineer/Data Scientist. Josh has an interesting background because he leverages a mathematics and physics background to solve some pretty tough data-related problems. The conversation was lively with this Arkansas native as we dug deep into how he simplifies the data world for us. There are a few shenanigans in this podcast since Josh and I go back.
