Speakers have no idea what they’re talking about...?
Ep23 discussing polytopes — the speaker notes that they don’t really know anything about them and can barely even pronounce the word...
I would expect a discussion of mathematical contributions be made bu someone that actually learned and understood the math that was contributed... or at least rehearsed enough to be able to pronounce terms.
If trying to engage people with math showing an actual engagement on the part of the speaker would help. This feels like a high school history assignment that involves reading unfamiliar wikipedia pages... :/
Maybe it gets better?
