Hi

Hello

Blozzalardytum ,

Perfect for multitasking

I’m a new mature maths student who’s been desperately looking for audio material to soak up while working. This provides me with tons of concise and interesting conversation to make me feel like I’m learning without having to pick up a pen and pad.

Hope it continues for a long time. Thank you!
