    Prime numbers are considered to be the building blocks of mathematics. Every natural number can be broken down into the constituent prime numbers that make it up.

    Prime numbers have been known since antiquity and they are one of the most simple aspects of mathematics to understand, yet they remain at the center of some of the most puzzling problems in mathematics.

    Learn more about prime numbers, what we know about them, and what we don’t know, on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

    Mandarins and the Chinese Imperial Exams

    Mandarins and the Chinese Imperial Exams

    https://podfollow.com/everythingeverywhere/

    In the year 607, the Emperor Yang of the Sui dynasty implemented a reform whereby a series of exams would be administered throughout the empire to create a bureaucratic elite that would administer the country. 

    That reform became one of the bedrocks of Chinese society, through every dynasty, for the next 1,300 years. The effects of these exams can still be felt in Chinese society today.

    Learn more about the Mandarin class and the Imperial Examination system on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

    In the aftermath of World War II, the newly formed United Nations placed a group of Pacific Islands into a trusteeship that was to be administered by the United States. 

    After several decades, that trusteeship was dissolved and it resulted in three independent countries, one US territory, and a unique system of international relations. 

    Learn more about the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands and the countries of Micronesia, on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

    Modern society is completely dependent on a set of technologies that include computer chips, fiber optic cables, lasers, video screens, electric motors, and batteries. 

    All of those things are dependent on a small category of chemicals called rare earth elements. 

    Their importance in technology has made them a focal point of international trade and politics. 

    Learn more about rare earth elements and how the world has become completely reliant on them, on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

    The Acadian Expulsion

    https://podfollow.com/everythingeverywhere/

    Beginning in the 16th century, French settlers crossed the Atlantic to settle in a new French colony in the new world. That colony wasn’t modern-day Quebec, however. The colony was known as Acadia. 

    When the British took control of Acadia in 1713, the Acadians were allowed to stay, but eventually, that privilege was revoked by the British, and those people were scattered to the winds. 

    Today, the descendants of the Acadians can still be found all over the world. 

    Learn more about Acadia and the Acadian Expulsion on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

    It is one of the most simple machines that most people use, yet incredible amounts of engineering go into their design. 

    They are used by billions of people around the world and it is one of the only forms of transportation available to children. 

    They can make humans incredibly efficient and their development was in many ways surprising.

    I am of course talking about bicycles. Learn about the history of bicycles and how the modern version came to be on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

Perfect really

I only recently found this podcast and it is already one of my favorites. What’s not to love? It is chockfull of fun facts and history; it is educational, entertaining, and jolly good fun to listen to. Mr. Arndt, you do a fine job. .

Decent

This is a good podcast. It covers a wide variety of interesting topics. The podcaster, Gary Arndt, has a pretty good microphone voice, although he spesks very fast sometimes. He seems not to be aware of the different stabdard usages of "which vs. that" and "who vs. which". He also misponouhces many words. i admit those things bother me, but still the positives of this podcast outweigh the idkosuncrasies of tbe podcast, and i think it's worth listening to. I do wish he would consult a usage manual, though.

The show is good but has mistakes

In the show about Olga of Kiev you stated that Olga is one of only 5 women bestowed with the title ‘Equal to the Apostles’ by the Orthodox Church - that is incorrect; there were at least 7: Helen, Mother of St Constantine the Great - commemorated May 21; Mary Magdalene - July 22 & the 3rd Sunday of Pascha (Easter); Nana, Queen of Georgia - October 1; Nina, Enlightener of Georgia - January 14; Olga, Princess of Kiev - July 11; Photine, the Samaritan Woman - February 26 & the 5th Sunday of Pascha; and Thecla the First Woman Martyr - September 24. Your statement implies that the title ‘Equal to the Apostles’ has been given to male Saints many more times, but I could only find 7, the same number as the women. My source is the Index of Saints from The Great Horologion, translated from Greek and published by Holy Transfiguration Monastery, Boston, MA. In the show for January 1, in which you talk about the calendar and why the year begins on January 1st, you mention that January 1 is a Christian holy day - aka feast day - that used to be for the Circumcision of Christ but now is just the Solemnity of Mary. You should know that the Orthodox Church, which is the 2nd largest body of Christians in the world, still celebrates the Circumcision of Christ along with St Basil the Great on January 1. I’ve never heard of the Solemnity of Mary - it must be a Roman church holy day similar to the Synaxis of the Theotokos (Mary) which is celebrated in the Orthodox Church on December 26.
