Math with a side order of useless knowledge topped with the most interesting and bizarre aspects of interesting mathematicians’ lives! Hypatia! Pythagorus! Euclid! We all have heard some of their stories, but what about Cardano? His quartet of episodes is amazing! I laughed… I cried… I questioned my own life! Thanks, Nathalie, for a great podcast. I wish there were more for me to binge!
Truly Entertaining, Witty, and Fun!
I’m definitely a podcast gal and just always am eager for new subjects and fascinations about anything interesting. Being a podcast of going through the lives of famous mathematicians, it really hits the spot of intellectually satisfying you as well as comically and emotionally! The hosts are so fun and quirky! I love their personalities and how they vibe off each other (also the fact they reference Harry Potter! love it!) I really feel their passion and how they dive into their research of every episode and truly appreciate it! 10/10 recommend this podcast for anyone, whether you’re a math nerd or not! I cannot wait for the next episodes and look forward to who they’re going to dive into the life of next! :)
This podcast is awesome!!!
