xojohannyxo ,

A lot of potential

I like where this podcast is going so far. There aren’t that many podcasts about mathematics & where it came from, that isn’t just based on interviews/conversations with people, so I’m very happy to have found this. The narrator teaches us about math & what exactly is “math” in a way that you don’t need a doctorate’s in the subject to understand.
