cool dude2845 ,

Amazing content

Great host, great interviews, much more than just about math. Brady finds smart, interesting people and gets their best stories and thoughts. Overall just an awesome show.

Incredible interviewer.

I am struck by how often it happens that while Brady Haran interviews someone they will say that “ that’s the first I’ve thought of that but..YES”

What a great interviewer and wonderful series.

Awesome podcast

Brady has such a personable approach to a broad array of people. I’ve been listening to Numberphile for a while and every episode is quite good. I’ve just listened to the Third Cornet with Katie Steckles while out riding my bike. Very interesting and a pleasure to hear.
