So what’s it actuary about? is a podcast designed to inform and inspire those interested in the field of actuarial science, those who have taken the leap and are studying actuarial science or those who have fought and won their qualified designation. Actuaries are often seen as backroom number crunchers who love their spreadsheets more than human interaction. As much as all actuaries are uncommonly numerate, the world of actuarial science is far more colourful and dynamic than stereotypes would imply. This podcast hopes to reveal some of this nuance in conversation with those studying, teaching and working in the field of actuarial science. In summary, the aim of this podcast is to demystify the art of the actuary.
