ACM Bytecast: Donald Knuth on Computing

From my earliest days doing coding, I was reading Donald Knuth's legendary texts.  Now here is a free and open podcast interview with him.  Will be following.

" ... In the latest episode of ACM ByteCast, a new podcast series at the intersection of computing research and practice, host Rashmi Mohan interviews legendary computer scientist Donald Knuth. Knuth is the 1974 ACM A.M. Turing Laureate and author of the hugely popular textbook series, "The Art of Computer Programming." They discuss what led him to discover his love of computing as well as writing about computer programming, his outlook on how people learn technical skills, how his mentorship has helped him write “human oriented” programs, how his dissatisfaction with early digital typesetting led him to develop TeX, and the problems he is still working to solve.
