A big chunk of your effort in becoming a (better) Data Scientist will always involve sitting in front of your monitor and actually work on projects and trainings. But apart from that, there is also a lot of commute and travel time, where you won't have your notebook with you.
Podcasts are a great opportunity to fill this void and as a matter of fact, there are many wonderful podcasts covering data science topics such as neural networks, statistics, programming in Python, R, Julia and real world data science workflows.
