    I recently came across the data engineering podcast and found it very informative especially since I move to take this new role in my organization. While going through episode 1 I noted the community link but found it not reachable. I wanted to have discussions within the group and was looking forward for the community forum. Could you please let me know if the community url is right – community.dataengineeringpodcast.com or guide me to the right discussion forum link?

    Also it would be very helpful if you could share some of the public slack channels that I can subscribe too to know more about data engineering.
