Fascinating & Fun with Math (says a sociologist!)
This podcast is incredibly well-produced. It is easy to listen to and anyone paying attention can learn from it (no mathematical background required!). I especially liked the inquisitive, excited tone.
Huge thumbs up to the latest and greatest podcast in my rotation!
Really fun interesting podcast with great interviews that give great background on a subject. Very accessible and well made.
It turns out math is cool after all
I have recently begun homeschooling my fourth grader. I was dreading math but, it turns out that I am enchanted. Thank you for putting out a show that inspires me to rediscover mathematical ideas in useful and quirky ways. Where we're you when I was struggling in the early grades??
